Day 137- West Palm Beach, Florida: Along the Crooked Road
When we start to lose our faith we have no choice but to pick up our rucksacks and push forward through the mud. Not everyone’s journey is the same and our battles our unlike anyone else’s battles. Though our travels may be difficult and the road may be crooked at times, with Jesus walking with us we know that we are safe. We have no idea what tomorrow will bring, but today we know that we are safe in the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
One of the aspects of our faith that we can always count on is the love that God shares with us during our times of strife. There are times and moments where critical events occur and how we respond will determine how well we deal with adversity in our lives. Being positive and praying for God to intervene in our lives only make us a stronger follower of Christ as we grow. Where are we going? What is our final destination? How many people will we help along our journey and how many people will help us?
The Apostle John teaches us from Jesus the road that we must follow: “Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him”. We may not have met Jesus in the flesh and blood, but we know God through our faith. We know that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. We also know when the chips are down and we keep our faith, we will rebound triumphantly. We must be honest with ourselves and not allow the devil to discourage us from taking the steps necessary to get back up when we fall down, as God heals the cuts and bruises mentally, emotionally, and physically that we get along the way.
