Living in Michigan, if you want to run outside, it means that sometimes you have to run in the snow. The other day, I was running on a path that I’ve run hundreds of times. It’s paved, but when its snow covered, it makes for some very tricky footing. It turns a normal 15 foot wide trail, into about 1 foot wide. However, I’ve learned that if I can hug the side of the trail with the edge of the grass, I get better footing. This causes me to pay much more attention to where I’m stepping. Also, there’s no way that I can run my normal pace, because underneath that snow-covered path, could be a mini-pothole, raised concrete, or even ice.
In life, sometimes your, “well known path” can become snow-covered. Proverbs 4:25 says, “Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze straight before you.” Even though your footing might not be firm, and your steps can be difficult, have faith that God will give you exactly what you need. Even if your clear path is only 1 foot wide.
Keep your gaze straight. Go make a difference. And always Run By Faith.
