What have I learned in life so far? I’ve learned that God is faithful. The route that I’ve walked, run, ridden, stumbled, and crawled upon, is one that, seemingly at times, had no purpose and, certainly, wasn’t pleasant. The metaphorical dark valleys have been pitch black during some seasons while, in others, the sunlit-peaks have been higher and brighter that I ever thought was possible in this life. But, through it all, there has been a vision. It wasn’t my vision, but, His. Even now, I don’t know what the rest of the pilgrim’s journey that lies ahead of me will look like. There could be tragedies and trials ahead that will call every ounce of my faith into question, but, that’s already happened in this life, I’ve come through it, by His grace, and I know where my ultimate fate lies. I know the One who will be there with me as I take every step, always trying to just put one foot in front of the other. I will surely trip and fall at times. I may even be thrown to the ground violently by this world. But, I’m not afraid. He’s with me and, in the end, even more so than it does now, my life will have found its ultimate purpose and I will know joy beyond what my finite brain and my currently earth-bound soul can even imagine.
