As If I Know the Way

By Charlotte S. Goodrum



The God of the universe beckons me to be still and listen for His voice.  And yet, I clamor through this world running here and rushing there as if I know the way.  I know God is in control of my life and joy is found in His presence.  I know He is faithful and every promise He makes He will keep. 


So, I wonder, why do I still have times in my life when I question His means to an end?  I know He has been faithful and true to me.  He is my very best friend.  I know I can trust Him with every aspect of my life.  So why, why do I sometimes question the path He has set forth?


Is it because I want to be in control?  Oh, I truly do not.  Knowing my future would seriously stress me.  Is it because I’m afraid of what lies ahead?  Sometimes I am fearful of what lies before me.  I am sincerely sorry for being fearful because I know there is no fear in love and I know God is Love.  I know nothing is impossible with God and I know “all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NKJV)  I know God is good all the time and all the time God is good.  I have great evidence of this in my life.  Things I thought might have been detrimental have actually been the best things that could have ever happened to me.  So, why do I sometimes stumble about as if I am walking in the dark? 


To be truthful, I do not know.  However, this I do know.  God, my Creator, is always very close.  And sometimes, when I am at peace in His presence, He allows me to reach out and touch His warm, gentle face.  He assures me of His presence, His watchful eye, His mighty hand, and His outstretched arm.  He is always working for me, He is always protecting me, He is always watching me, He always loves me, and He always knows the way.
