For the past three years, I feel like our life has been very much like this picture. We have been on a road that we know is built by a master builder. We trust that it is well engineered and the foundation is sure. We are excited and a little anxious about what we will find at the end of the road. We've never been there before so we're not sure what it will look like. The road twists and turns, has sharp corners and the cliff beside is deadly. We can only see a little way ahead and the switchbacks are terrifying. Traveling is wearying and we often find ourselves asking, "Are we there yet?!"
But we keep driving,
trusting that our map is good and our destination will be worth the drive.
And then it happens...
We come around a curve and gasp! The view is breathtaking!
We pull over just to sit and stare in awe at God's vast power and creative artistry!
We know that sooner or later we will have to get back in the truck and drive. We know that the future will continue to require great faith and obedience, but we are reminded that often just around the corner is something that will make all of the miles worth it.
So we travel on...
