Finding the right path – prayerful discernment

I love this time of year when the undergrowth is growing wild out of control. Throughout the seasons I walk with Cagney and Lacey through Delamere Forest. They always find a new scent, or a new path to explore.

Unlike the winter months, as the ground cover begins to grow the animal trails are easier to spot. This is the time of year to explore the paths less known.

As the vegetation gets higher and higher, the lesser used trails begin to show themselves. It makes me wonder what wildlife is around us, just out of sight. Some of them do make use of the man made paths as well though.

Sometimes we see the main path before us as being the only path we can follow. If we are patient, and take plenty of time, but most of all join with the world around us guided by the Holy Spirit in that exploration, there may be other options open to us, if we are willing.

Trust in God.

Focus on his mission, and together we will find the right path that leads to healing and wholeness. Where our churches and circuits can see God’s Kingdom flourishing.
