Why am I on this road? This is not a road I normally travel in life. And it’s leading me to places that make me feel very uncomfortable. I can’t believe I am actually here. This is not where I had planned to travel in life. I took a wrong turn somewhere along the way. This road is dark and treacherous.
Why am on this road? I wasn’t paying attention. I was careless. The signs were posted very clearly, but I missed them. I missed them! And now, I find myself going down a road that is clearly leading to a dead-end. But how do I turn around now? This road is scaring me.
Why am on this road? It’s getting darker. The people I am encountering on it are unfamiliar. They seem nice, but they are of no help at all. I keep asking them how to find my way back to a more familiar path, and they just laugh. I am not sure what to think about the company I am keeping, as I continue down this road… This road is causing me to feel very disengaged from my community.
Why am on this road? I find myself in a state of self-destruction. Every turn on this road leads to places I don’t want to be in life. There doesn’t seem to be a way out. It feels like a nightmare. I am going to be stuck here forever! Nothing good can come from continuing in this direction. This road is causing me to give up hope.
Why am on this road? I am here because I ignored the signs. I now admit that. And I realize I am asking the wrong people for help. Help is out there, but I must rely once again on God. Even the most treacherous road will not take away hope from me permanently. This road will not end up defining my journey through life.
Why am on a new road? I am on a new journey! I am on a new road! I am on a road that is getting lighter. It is actually leading me directly to the light. And why am I here? I am here, because were some special guides… They found me on that dark and treacherous way, and they carefully guided me back to safety. I am walking in the light now. And it sure feels good. I am on the road of life I am supposed to be on now. The guides were actually there the entire time, but I was so disoriented. I could not believe I was in such a treacherous place. I nearly gave up hope…I thought I was stuck on a dark road, but that was not the case.
Where do you find yourself today? Do you find yourself on a road you never imagined you would be on? God is faithful. He will provide guides to carefully lead you back to a road illuminated by the Light. Are you open to following their lead and walking with them toward the light?
