The last few weeks, we’ve been considering the paths and and choices we make. Wisdom guards our path and keeps us walking in the right direction (Wisdom for Your Path from Proverbs).

After experiencing our share of dead-ends and circling back, it was rewarding to make our way out!
I’m sharing a picture of the most confusing sign I think I’ve ever seen! It directs local traffic from a freeway off-ramp into roundabouts on both the east and west sides of the freeway. This sign reminds me of the confusion we often feel about decisions in life. “Which of these four jobs should I pursue? Or none of them?” “Should I marry this person?” “Be involved in this ministry?” “Move?” “Or something else that I don’t know of and haven’t thought of yet?!”
What is the path ahead of you like? Maybe it seems difficult or like the destination is unknown. Or maybe it feels familiar and well worn, like you are trudging along the same old lane. While none of us is in control of the things that lie across the path ahead of us, trusting in God and living wisely will guide our steps and determine our destination.
