What does the path you are walking down look like?
Do you fix your eyes on the dark patches?
Or do you focus on the beams of light that illuminate the step just before you?
Do you see a "mud puddle" in your future?
One so big that no matter how hard you try it can't be avoided? One that you must walk through.
When you started down this path you didn't think you would get muddy. In fact, you expected not to.
Do not be afraid. You are not alone.
For the God that made the path you are walking down...
with all the dark and light patches...
also made the mud.
He WILL carry you through.
For this is the path you are walking down together.
