I walking on a path up a big hill, when suddenly I felt my feet being knocked out from under me. I fell and rolled all the way back down to the bottom of the hill. Once again, I was going to have to start over. This had happened many times before and my patience was long gone. I was losing all hope of ever getting to the top. In an angry voice, I yelled to the sky, “Why is it that whenever I start to make some progress up this hill; I get knocked back down to where I started?!”

I then heard a voice say; “You were taking the wrong paths. I placed warning signs all along them, but you ignored my signs. So each time you went too far up the wrong path, I would have to bring you back down the hill.” I then saw a ray of light shining directly on a path that I hadn’t noticed and probably wouldn’t have taken even if I had. “This is your path….” The voice told me. I walked to the path and realized that this path was new and made me feel uneasy. When I looked up the path and hesitated, the voice said to me, “Just remember-if you ever lose your way, just stop and ask for directions. If you stick with this path, you will make it to the top.” I then held my head a little higher and began my journey on this new path; and immediately I felt a sense of peace deep within my heart.

You used a creative way of expressing what happens to us all-though we may not recognize it at the time.

I am trying to relate this to leadership. I guess it is the divine leadership that we forget to follow so bent we are on the human ones around us.

You've put important truth into a tight concise package. I've fallen down that hill too many times myself, always from lack of seeking My Leader's direction.

I can relate. I appreciate this article and I thank you for submitting it to FaithWrtiters.com It helps me to remember in this faith walk other brethren are having the same difficulties throughout the world. God works in it all, watching out for us all every step of the way. Even on the wrong path he is there to detour us. Keep writing and submitting from your heart. Thanks Again.
