Thoroughly Followed Our Path
I was hiking the other night at sundown. I was nearing the last leg of the mountain path I was traveling. It occured to me that if I stayed on the path, I would be back to my car in 5 minutes or so.
The "path" leads to sobriety, peace and being usefully whole ... off the path ... hike at my own risk. Off the path are snakes, scorpions and various other creatures of the night that do not have my best interest in mind ... on the path ... a proven means to the desired end.
I am grateful that the path has been created and that if I simply stay on it I can enjoy the view as I travel. God willing and with a little willingness on my part, no search & rescue parties will be needed for me today.
