At the Crossroads
I feel like I am at a crossroads in my life. It's been awhile since I reached one. There are three paths available to me.
One path leads to the realization of all of my hopes and dreams, both for myself and for my marriage.
One path leads onward the same way I have been going, which is a lonely place of mostly solitary travel.
One path leads backward to some of the things that I have left behind, which still whisper to me and beckon for me to return to them.
From where I stand, the paths look identical. It will take some travel on each one before I can see the destination. And once I am far enough to see the destination, the crossroads will be past my reach.
Deep down in my heart, I know the things that I need to do. They are simple to understand (although that does not necessarily make them easy). I pray that I may follow the promptings of the Spirit, so that I may choose the correct path, the one that will lead me to the things which God desires for me.
