Travel Journal: Forks in the Road

There it is.  As plain as day.
A fork.

Idly sitting in the road.  Still. Serene.  No awareness of the storm it creates inside me, just by looking at it. 
We face them everyday, these forks.  
These decisions that weave together to create the story we call: Life.  It's just some forks seem bigger than others.  Some seem like they will change everything. 
And they could - they could change lots of things.
Except perhaps the most important thing.  
The one constant.

He is here. At my fork.  
At all my forks. He remains.  This never changes.
I wait in silence begging Him to tell me - which way do I go?
And sometimes, He has an opinion about that.  
But sometimes, He simply stands.  
My questions bounce off of Him like a mirror - which way do you want to go?
Moments to discover what He put inside you. And what stands beside you.
The revelation of HOPE, and its residence both within,
and beside.

"Hope does not disappoint (Romans 5:5)," He reminds,
"The fork does not determine My path."

He whispers, "You do," He extends his hand in invitation to the road ahead.
"For it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you." (Deuteronomy 31:6)"

Lord, we give you permission to remind us that Your are our Hope, and you remain by our side at all times.  We are never without hope, because we are never without You.
