Follow Your Own Path
“Why are they blessed financially while we struggle?”
“Why did she get a contract before me while I’ve been trying longer?”
“Why is my marriage a wreck when I’m pursuing God and they’re blissfully happy after being remarried?”
“Why do I continue to sacrifice for the Lord and suffer while others live wanton lives and are blessed?”
I don’t know the answers to these questions and many others people ask. Even Peter, who was one of Jesus’ closest friends, didn’t understand why he would have to be matryed for the Gospel while John, the beloved would remain alive.
And Jesus didn’t feel the need to supply an answer. “If I want him (John) to remain alive until I return, what is it to you? You must follow me.” John 21:22
He simply told Peter to follow him.
Keep your eyes in front, not to the side, looking at what happens to other. Follow Jesus.
How simple and how difficult at the same time!
Are you following your own path or trying to walk in the shadows of those around you?
If you’re walking in the shadows, how can Jesus shine on your path?
