Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all the day long.
Psalm 25: 4-5
About This Image:
It was the second day of our recent road trip to the west and the interstate in Iowa was like driving the Daytona 500 with transfer trucks. So we got out the map and headed for Highway 30, this 2-lane road also called the Lincoln Highway. It was one of the best decisions that we made on the trip because we got to see so much more with much less stressful driving. These two lane roads are not the way most people want to travel today. We are in a hurry to get to our destination. We sometimes want our relationship with God to be like this, quick answers to hard questions. When we truly ask God to lead us and teach us, it will take time. We will have to learn to wait, to be silent. Faith develops over time. I like these words from Brian Erickson from Feasting on the Word Year B Commentary: "Our identity will not be defined by what we claim to believe, but by the road we take. Faith is more than mountaintop moments; it also encompasses times of solitude and struggle. The right road will not always look like the right road." During this season of Lent may we take time to let God teach and lead us down the right road that he has for us.
