Joining the Journey

The voice of him that cries in the wilderness,
prepare ye the way of the Lord.
Make straight in the desert
a highway
for our God.

Isaiah 40:3

This is the time of year when I get easily off track.   Lost and wandering in a wilderness of winter doldrums,  I have too much to do at work, too little time at home and farm to cherish and protect the precious relationships in my life.

Winter clings like a cement suit — a desert of deprivation gone on too long.   I yearn for respite.

Today, a voice cries out to prepare myself and prepare a pathway for God to reach me, a God who actually has come for me.

It is time to look where I’m going, to walk a straight path with that goal in mind, and stop meandering meaninglessly.   This path, if straight and true,  will join thousands of others harkening to His call.

I am not alone on this road, not ever.  Nor are you.
