This Road

"I am with you always, even to the end of the age." ~Matthew 20:28

"We are all on This Road called life. The road has a beginning and it has an end. Sometimes the way is smooth and the road is a joy to travel on. Other times we can barely walk. The road called life is both hard and beautiful; however, the most beautiful thing about this road is you are never alone on it. Whether you know it or not, whether you believe it or not, it makes it no less true. The truth is you have a friend there walking with you. This unseen friend has been there all along from the start of your journey and will be there at the end ~ even when you take your last step. This companion can carry you when the way is too rough and you want to give up. This friend desires to walk in front of you, leading you when the way is too dark to see. This friend will speak to you words along the way that fill you with joy even when it's raining and cold. There is someone on that road with you all of the time, who knows you better than you know yourself, and since He is the creator of this road, He knows every bump, every turn, every hill and every valley you will ever travel He traveled it, too. My hope is if you do not know this friend, you ask to meet Him." - MeMe Stephens
