This picture reminds me of the way my life looks when I try to do things my way and make something happen on my own. The lines go all over the place with no rhyme or reason and don’t make any kind of sense.
When you follow God, you might feel as if your life looks this way, but God has everything under control because He can see the big picture of how it all fits together. He takes you up hills, down into valleys, around sharp curves, and sometimes you feel you are walking treacherously along the side of a mountain with a steep drop on one side and nowhere to go but to inch forward. But through all this he always has you protected in the palm of His Hand if you will only trust Him.
There are many stories in the Bible where God specifically told a person something but it took awhile for it to actually come to pass. That person tried to force something to happen, and things ended up being really bad. Some things they did thousands of years ago still affect us today in a negative way just as some things you do now can affect your extended family for years in the future.
Don’t try to do things you own way any longer. God knows exactly where he is taking you every moment of the day, and will never lead you astray.
Put your trust in Him and you will start to see His Character. When you do, your old way of life will seem very boring and mundane compared to the exciting paths He will carry you down.
