I recently got separated from a group and was lost in the mountains of West Virginia. When I came to a crossroads I was not sure which way to go. So I stood quietly and listened for voices and looked for footprints and other signs. I chose the path to the right, the high road, even though it was the more difficult one. Thank God, I found my way back.
Throughout this life we come to crossroads and must make choices.
Not always is the easier choice the best one. Usually we have to take “the high road” and do what’s right instead of what’s convenient or popular. Sometimes we feel we are all alone on the path, but since God is everywhere we are never really alone. Usually we just need to quiet our own weakness to temptation and look for God’s signs and “hear” His subliminal voices.
