Five Minute Friday: Guide

It’s Friday!  Grateful to be digging out of the piles that accumulate during busy, stressful times. It’s been a good week.

Linking up again with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday crew.

Writing this week on the prompt word: guide.

*********************
The first thing that comes to mind is Gandalf.

Then, a winding, disappearing path in the forest.

You can’t make it without Gandalf there to guide you. And sometimes, you can’t even see him.

The reality is that we don’t know the path ahead.

My good friend lost her husband to cancer in June. She didn’t know ten years ago or five years ago or even last year at this time what the path would look like today.

It’s hard to trust when you can’t see ahead. When you can’t even see the guide.

You are forced to bank on your rock solid beliefs: that God is there, that He is in control and that He is good.

Even when you can’t see the path.

    So true! During those darkest hours when we feel so alone and in despair we sometimes have to trust that He is there holding us as He leads us through the “shadows of death.” Your friend will be in my thoughts and prayers. May she feel the presence, love, peace, and compassion of her Comforter and Creator.
