I don't think it was chance. Someone was marking something. A message to another grounds worker? A heart message silently shared from a God-spoken-to heart? We can't know for sure... but it spoke to me.
The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."
- John 3:8
I try to plan my steps but when I don't trust the supreme Planner for the execution of those steps I get lost. His execution and direction doesnt' always make sense... at all.
... but the outcome is always glorious. Down the hill and through the trees in the direction of the mysterious pointing stone I was able to snap these shots. As I look at them now I ponder the significance... how many of God's little leadings in life which seem small and insignificant, lead us to something so wonderful we can't imagine the steps we are taking are bringing us there.
As if in confirmation of this pondering, God place before my ears today a message which encourages those small, trees-in-the-way-of-the-view steps: Our lives are made up of a series of small steps. Some are more immediately profound then others, but all lead in a certain direction. (Even when you can't tell what direction that is!)
What direction are you going?
We may not know the plans, but we can trust the supreme Planner and take the path, one small step at a time.
Many Blessings to you as you travel your path today!
