I often think about times of indecision and my fear for the future. Whether we choose a direction, or it chooses us, the best thing we can do is keep taking one step forward and trust that God loves us.
Our paths are neither stagnant nor permanent. We go through both good and dark times during life’s journey.
Quaker theologian Parker Palmer writes, “…Many young people today journey in the dark, as the young always have, and we elders do them a disservice when we withhold the shadowy parts of our lives.”
When my path is uncertain or far from ideal, I know God still loves me. And I’ll be okay.
