This past week has been the stuff of an epic disaster movie. Polar vortexes, frost quakes and subzero temps have turned much of North America into a winter sufferland. In the midst of this wintry ordeal, I found this video that warmed me up with a little laughter:
Sometimes life can be this confusing. A tough decision or a change in our circumstances can feel like a zigzag path. That journey we so carefully planned suddenly makes an unexpected turn that leads us into the cold. Christians don’t have all the answers, but we are on a quest to stay close to the One who does.
“I know not the way God leads me,” Martin Luther said, “but well do I know my Guide.”
This doesn’t make some choices any easier. But knowing that the Good Shepherd is right by our side makes it more comforting.
