You Want Me To Do WHAT?

This view led to a dialogue between God and me earlier this month.

********************************************************

God,
You want me to go where?
There?
You mean keep walking forward?
I can’t see.
What if there is a big drop-off out there?
An un-scalable mountain range?
A bear? A lion?
What if I am all alone?

My child,
I didn’t tell you to go any further
than you can see.
There’s enough for the next step.
Do you remember, last night you saw this same area from a different perspective.
You even saw a path leading into those tall rushes.
You can see enough to get to the path and start walking on it.
I know what’s ahead.
I know what you need
to keep going where I am
leading.

You can’t see but I can.

Just because you can’t see the path as far ahead as
you would like to see,
doesn’t mean you can’t start walking on the path
you can see.

But God,
I am really scared.
So many things can happen “ have already happened. Things have been pretty upside down the past number of years. I can’t keep up with the changes.

My Child,
I know. I know.

You get to be scared and it’s OK if you question. I understand.
All I ask is you keep walking as long as you can see enough to take the
next step.
I am with you. I’ve got you.

And you have a lot of people in your life to remind you
you are not alone.

But God,
What if I do get to a place where I
cannot see the next step?
What then?

My Child,Â
if you can’t see, then just rest for a bit.
You’ll see the next step when you need it.

So God,
How about this picture now? I’ve added these words.

 

 

 

My Child:
Now you’ve got it.
