Lessons from Walking Backwards
Have you ever tried walking backwards ? Well I have. I was just trying, and wonder how it feels like.
It seems odd to know that we are always walking forwards, seeing the path in front of us before we step in, but life is more like walking backwards. We can always see our past, the paths that we have taken or not taken, but not our future.
Sometimes the only clue that you may have about your future is just a peek view over your shoulder. What if I stumble down ? What if I choose the wrong way ? What ifs ???
I think, there are times, when you should believe that you’re not alone. God is very close to you, and He have plans, a bigger path for your future. But many times, what you can see from His plan, is just a peek from your shoulder. Just like when you’re walking backwards.
Today’s reading caught me: Mark 4:1-20, specially Mark 4:18-19
18″And others are the ones on whom seed was sown among the thorns; these are the ones who have heard the word,
19but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
I should trust Him more.
