Leaving my car I pulled my hood up over my ball cap to keep the rain from blinding my eyes. I had a desire to walk some things out and waiting for the weather to change was taking too long. I was just going to have to be willing to get wet as I pursued my heart and thoughts to go into deeper places.
I’d been feeling like my life was upside down again. Although I was trying to take things in stride, some days seemed more challenging for getting a grasp of what my life was to look like in the norm. As the raindrops fell about my head I could hear their sound amplified in my ears. With each step, my mind’s clutter lessened, until I was only left with thoughts of observation for the beauty around me.
Passing one of the many benches set along the path I noticed rose petals and leaves scattered about. Looking around it was clear to see this was a flower brought from outside. It made me wonder about the person who had sat here to scatter this flower. What had they been thinking as they pulled apart the fragrant blossom?
I could find humor in wondering if that wasn’t my own answer to life at the moment. A rose in hand, plucking at the petals one at a time while questioning aloud, “do I go left, or do I go right?” I knew the better answer, but I smiled nonetheless.
Isa 30:21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.
