WHEN YOU TRUST CHRIST as a source of light, he gives direction one step at a time. This can be frustrating, especially if you need to know where your steps will take you. However, if life is a journey and not a destination, then Christ determines “there.” It makes things easier. You don’t have to worry about where you’ll end up. You can focus on following directions.
Maybe that direction will be to take a step of reconciliation in a relationship. That may be an intimidating prospect. What if the other person is not receptive? What if your action makes things worse? We can’t know. We can’t see the end of the path, just the next steps.
