On our journey we sometimes find a straight road and an easy path and our direction is clear. Other times the road is winding even dangerous.
Or we find a wall blocking the road we need to travel. Banging our head against the bricks only gives us a headache and bleeding. Perhaps we need to find other paths, even step into the mud of the mangroves, squelshing our way forward.
Life isn't meant to be easy isn't it?
Quotes from the novel The Shack.
‘Does that mean’, asked Mack, ‘that all roads will lead to you?’ ‘Not at all’, smiled Jesus as he reached for the door handle to the shop. ‘Most roads don’t lead anywhere. What it does mean is that I will travel any road to find you.’” (182)
Sarayu: “Mack, if anything matters than everything matters. Because you are important, everything you do is important. Every time you forgive, the universe changes; every time you reach out and touch a heart or a life, the world changes; with every kindness and service, seen or unseen, my purposes are accomplished and nothing will ever be the same again” (235).
