I've been thinking about the choices we make each day. Have you ever experienced a big snowfall where it is difficult to plow your way through the drifts? I remember when our boys were little, they would follow behind and walk in our footsteps, so it wasn't so difficult for their small legs. They were able to walk a further distance since they didn't tire out as easily when the path was already plodded for them.
How much better it would be if we followed this same philosophy. Our Heavenly Father has already provided and walked the path He has for us. We need to choose to walk and follow in His footsteps. We can decide to blaze our own trail, beating through the briers, thorns and weeds, perhaps sometimes straying to a path that may look easier to trod, or we can choose to be like Him. Which path are you choosing?
