When You Cannot See Your Way Ahead

I’ve talked to friends just like me who enjoy certainty and clear future plans. As the COVID pandemic continues, we ask questions about our semesters, our summer plans, and our expectations for the fall. Who knows? We cannot see our way ahead.

I love how the Holy Spirit will remind us of comforting passages of scripture to cling to when we cannot see our way ahead. In Psalm 142:3, an overwhelmed and uncertain David writes, “When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who knows my way.” In the King James version, it reads, “When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path.”

It occurs to me that we do not have to know everything because God knows our way. It’s relaxing if you think about. We don’t have to read the map or navigate in the front seat. We can sit back and enjoy the view. We’ll get where we’re supposed to be soon.
