Teach me to do your will, for you are my God!
Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground! Psalm 143:10
Yesterday, my great-nieces were over to our house playing in the front yard. One was showing us her skills in jump rope skipping, the other, cartwheels. Our yard slopes towards the street. It wasn’t long before they realized how hard it was to tumble and hop uphill, and far too easy going down. They both kept losing their balance. “This isn’t like our school playground,” the jumper discovered. “My gym class floor is flat,” the other responded.
Isn’t that life? Sometimes it is such a struggle and an uphill battle, while other times, we head downhill so fast that we can’t seem to find the brakes. But when we follow God’s will, when we turn to Him as our source, He levels the playing field. We are on solid ground – the straight path, secure without fear of being out of balance. Life is may be full of ups and downs, but Our Lord makes a straight path in the wilderness. Prepare ye the way.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. . . (Proverbs 3:5)
