  1. Well written…sometimes I have found that I have not seen the path that God has had me on until I have walked it a bit and looked back. I found on occasion that when I do that, I find myself so happy that He was the one leading me on my journey in life, cus there were a few places along the way that I could have taken an exit from His plan, but He was faithful and kept me on course.

    • Amen to that. My whole family was just on a path that seemed so completely absurd. Lots of people around me kept trying to encourage me to do what made sense – to them. And what they were saying did make worldly sense. I just had this nagging feeling that I needed to keep on the path that I was on. Honestly, what I was doing didn’t make any earthly sense. But when I look back on it, I can see God’s hand all over it, in my life, my kids’ lives, the lives of those we were serving and who were serving us. It’s only the people who kept trying to get me to do the sensible thing that seem to not be able to see where God had orchestrated the whole thing. On the one hand, it can be discouraging. But in hindsight, there’s nothing I would change!
