Broad is the road that leads to destruction
Narrow is the road that leads to life
Every day we have a choice...
A choice to love and a choice to hate
A choice to lead and a choice to follow
A choice to listen and a choice to lash out
A choice to do good and a choice to do harm
A choice to build up and a choice to tear down
A choice to move forward and a choice to give up
Every choice we face is a fork in the road we are traveling
The road in one direction is wide and well worn
Many people run down this path
The pull in this direction is strong
Like a powerful current tugging at your feet
The road in the other direction looks rough and scary
Few people risk the unknown of pushing through the overgrowth
The wind pushes you back as you consider this way
But the breeze feels peaceful, somehow tempting to your soul
Which path will you choose?
The broad road that leads to destruction?
Or the narrow road that leads to life?
My heart longs for the narrow road, and this blog is meant as a tool to share about the lessons I'm learning along the way.
For much of my life I felt alone in my pain, misunderstood and confused about how to break free from the unhappy life I continuously found myself in. One of the things that has helped me heal has been connecting with people who have experienced similar pain, but who have somehow found a way through it. If I can offer a little bit of hope to even one other person who feels alone or without hope, then this website will have served its purpose. I have no fancy words or secret remedies to fix life, but hopefully as I share my pain, my joy, my thoughts, it will somehow bring you comfort and encouragement as you, too, stumble along the narrow road of life.
Don’t give up!
