It’s easy to get caught up in the same daily routine, only to receive the same results. One day last week, I decided to change up my workout routine and do a circuit around my apartment building: jumping jacks, squats and a few runs around the block. For the first two sets I did my run clockwise. On my third set I ran around the block counter-clockwise. I was able to see the neighborhood from a different angle, helping me to see things from a new perspective. I was approaching the last part of my run when I had to round a corner with hedges that were taller than me. The view running clockwise versus counter clockwise allowed me to see more of what was up ahead. Without even thinking about what could possibly block me on the other side of the hedges, I rounded the corner on faith, believing there was a clear path ahead of me.
How often do we overthink the potential road blocks ahead because we can’t see what’s coming?
Too often we start thinking about all of the negative possibilities in the way of where we are going, that we either slow ourselves down, change direction, or stop all together. Sometimes we just have to have blind faith, and know that He has already blazed the trail to our destiny, while equipping us with all we need to overcome any obstacles that may arise along the way.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
