In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your path straight (Proverbs 3:6).
If you didn’t read yesterday’s post, may I suggest that now would be a good time? Otherwise, today’s post will not make a whole lot of sense. Just a suggestion–you do what you gotta do.
Call me Mr. Toad.
So all we had to do was get Teensy down the hill–¾ of a mile of steep, winding, rutted, half-washed-out dirt road. With no power, which translates into no power steering and no power brakes.
Alec and I gave the old girl a shove, hopped in, and held on tight.
It took about two minutes…or twenty years…kinda depends on your perspective. I remember it in brief glimpses–hauling the wheel around tight turns, standing on the brakes to avoid going over the edge. At one point we flew; that was interesting. So very much dust. It was a rollercoaster ride without the safety harness or the secure track.
Metaphor for life, anyone?
Maybe I should have gone with the alternate translation for today’s verse. Instead of, “He will make your path straight,” I could have said, “He will direct your path.” Cause the literal path down the mountain was pretty unstraight, but it was the path God directed–it was the only way to go. And because it was God’s ordained path, we were as safe in our flying minivan as if we had been wrapped in our sleeping bags, snoozing in our high tower.
So, yeah, we made it to the bottom of the hill, and Justin’s truck, and we jump started Teensy and were on our way. Mundane things tinged with the colors of divine appointment.
I wonder what adventure is in store for you today, Beloved? Trust in Him, and hold on tight.
