When The Path Is Unclear...

No matter how old you are or how much experience you possess in a certain area everyone encounters a season where things appear to be a little unclear. I can remember traveling on the highway one day when the fog was especially thick. I could only see maybe 2 or 3 feet in front of me. I thought about pulling over and waiting it out, but I wanted to make it to my destination in a timely manner. Instead of pulling over and waiting for however long it would have taken for the road to clear, I simply slowed down and paced myself. I did not speed through the area because the fog caused my vision to be somewhat distorted. Before I knew it, I’d cleared the foggy area and could now see further and was able to pick up speed. I realized that had I pulled over on the road I would have been stuck in the foggy area and would have taken longer to make it to a clearer climate and ultimately taken longer to make it to my destination.

So I encourage you today keep moving at a steady pace even when the path is not clear. Just put one foot in front of the other and keep walking. The thing about traveling down a foggy road is that the more you take your time and move at a steady pace the closer you get to your destination and the clearer things become. If God has given you a desire, vision, or called you to a specific purpose and the path to get there doesn’t seem clear, just pace yourself. The path will become clearer as you keep moving. Stopping where you are because of an unclear path may only cause you to be delayed in getting to your destination. KEEP MOVING!!!
