The only way

I read this blog post from Lysa TerKeurst this morning, and it totally spoke to me:

No matter how many times I whispered over and over, “there’s no way,” this nagging sense of possibility wouldn’t leave me. It wove its way through every fiber of my being until I stood up and shifted everything I thought my family would be with one weakly whispered, “Yes.”

Aren’t there so many times in our lives when, presented with a seemingly crazy choice, we say “There’s no way…” It’s the choice between stability and uncertainty. Would I quit my job and become a missionary? Quit school to write for God? Sometimes the idea is so far away from what we imagine for ourselves that it gets immediately rejected before it has a chance to take hold. It’s probably true that “there’s no way” in my power, but Lysa reminds us of Jesus’ promise that He is the way.

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6)

If God is calling on you to do something for Him, there is a way — His way. I will trust in the Lord and lean not on my own understanding.
