Train tracks are mesmerizing. They suggest a journey, but a journey that is firmly determined. The tracks ensure that.
In a some ways, our own journeys are determined. And that takes the fear away. We follow the tracks and move toward a destination. Mandy Hale describes the journey like this.
Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.
― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass
It’s simple, really. With God as our companion, our journey is focused, determined. We know where we are going. We are confident of our destination. We are comforted as we move forward, knowing that God guides our way.
In their hearts human beings plan their lives. But the Lord decides where their steps will take them.
– Proverbs 16:9
