This quote is from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, one of my all time favorite devotionals. She wrote down what she felt Jesus telling her.
I especially liked this. I know a lot of different people on different paths right now. Some are wandering closer to Jesus, some farther away right now. some are lost, some have found a direct route and are headed as fast as they can to the cross and our Savior.
Here’s the thing: all of those paths are GOOD. None are better than others. Each will have bumps. And even that person on the direct path is going to hit some construction along the way. The important thing is that we all end up at the same destination: the hands of God.
Let Him lead you there. Let Him take you on your own path. Don’t expect to follow someone else’s. Don’t think your path is the only or the best way–it is for YOU, but not someone else. Let them walk their path and find Jesus in their own faith, in His plan.
