The Less-Traveled Road

This past weekend I officiated a wonderful couple’s wedding in Canby, Oregon.   I had the opportunity to explore the countryside after my phone map guide diverted me from the route most take. I did not feel completely comfortable following the directions; however, I knew my destination required me to take some country roads.   Whenever, I’m not sure of how to get somewhere, I know there’s a possibility for a road adventure, which will get me to my destination in a different way than most.

There’s always something more to see and experience when we’re willing to go on the less traveled road.

I enjoyed the country roads all by myself; no one was on the road until I neared my destination. I took in the beauty of the rolling hills, fields with crops almost ready for harvest, tree-lined roads, and a magnificent view of Mount Hood. Only God!

It’s how I want to live. I’m determined to go where God says to go, willing to take the less-traveled road, enjoying the ride of a lifetime.

Question: What road are you on today?

Thoughts from my journal:

  • Be willing to take the less-traveled road of life.
  • Experience an adventure.
  • See the “more” of God.
  • Stop, look, and listen in the FIRST FIFTEEN and be ready to go.

There’s so much more to life with God.  Only God could plan such a magnificent journey!

“So remember this and keep it firmly in mind: The Lord is God both in heaven and on earth, and there is no other” (Deuteronomy 4:39, NLT).
