2013 | Day 33: WHAT YOU SENSE



Sometimes there is no knowing what comes next. But… There IS a SENSE, something INSIDE you that instinctively knows that the path you are walking on is the one you SHOULD be following. The path you are carving for yourself is the one that you are MEANT to be creating. The uneven surface covered in snow that you find yourself on you were supposed to tread, so that you COULD find your footing even in the most dangerous terrain and learn to TRUST in yourself. The river covered in ice that you just traversed across, hearing the swift currents roar beneath the thin crust between you and a frozen hell, you were intended to cross, so that you could learn to SOUND out the journey and rely on your SENSES. The mountains in their large stillness and covered in a blanket of white terror that you venture to journey into you were meant to pass through, so that you could begin to have FAITH in the compass INSIDE your soul, and in the faithfulness of He who is omnipresent and magnificent.

We all come to crossroads in our lives. We always pass through stormy weather. We all get hit by storms that we could never predict and are left in a world we do not know. That does not mean that we panic, despair, and give up, but that we soldier on, building our strength and courage by doing what we have never done before, going where we might never before have thought to venture, and find in the midst of it all, a greater sense of self and our purpose in this world.
