As I pulled my paddle through the water, and eased into prayer, the sun began peeking over the line of cypress trees on the lake’s edge, casting a glorious band of gold across the surface like it was marking out a path. It felt like divine timing. Yesterday I’d been writing about a scripture from Proverbs 4:18, “But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines brighter and brighter until the full day.”
Impulsively, I lined the nose of my kayak towards the light and pulled out my phone to capture the shot. I was headed towards the Son, S-O-N. Of course, by the time I got the camera app ready, the nose of my kayak was no longer lined up with the light. I tried again. I drifted again. I paddled back in line and repeated the process, again and again and again. I finally got the shot I was after, or something close to it, but not until the lesson registered.
The only sure way to navigate the golden path is to live in forward motion with our eyes trained on Jesus lest we drift off course!
Are you in full pursuit?
