I am walking on a path that is dimly lit and at the same time exceedingly bright. I am walking in the grace of God, being provided with a job that keeps the wolves from the door. And with an opportunity to advance in my education and my craft.
Yet as I walk this path, I cannot see an outcome, a goal to be achieved, a clear path. The brightness comes from trusting God. They say faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Honestly, my faith is in God. I have some dreams and wished, sure, but more, I have faith that God has a plan for my life.
Because of this, I am willing to walk in the shadows for a time. I have faith the fog will clear, and everything will be alright. I can do this because I have never known God to forsake me. Even in the darkest times of my life, God whispered “Do not fear, I am with you”, and He was.
So if you are moving in the dark right now, be assured that God is with you, and everything will be okay. I have never seen the righteous forsaken, or their seed begging bread. Trust in God.
