I have waited for those over me and even those around me to see, thinking I was supposed to take them with me.
Today something clicked for me. I realized that if I wait on those around me to see the path then the possibility I see may close. When I was raising my children I always had a saying, "We make our own roads." It was a way to illustrate to them that we don't always need to go with the crowd. Today it occurred to me that this was one of those times in my life.
I must go ahead and make a campfire so the others behind me can see the way.
I know the trail that I forge may not be easy. It may be God and I alone but I am willing to trust Him. He has never let me down . He has apparently called me to be the trail blazer. Oh how my words have come back to encourage me (or haunt me, I'm not sure which). "We make our own roads!"
OK God, Let's Do This!
