Very Narrow

Life is full of decisions. Some easy, some hard.
Some happy.
Some painful.
Some sad.
Some bittersweet.

but decisions have to be made everyday.

I know this narrow path I have chosen is where God wants me to be. The only way I can be in God's perfect will and my relationship with God healthy is walking down this path.

But....I'm not gonna lie. Sometimes it hurts and sometimes I am sad. Looking back at pictures I sometimes miss the friends I had.
Tears.
Pain.
Longing.

Sometimes I want to quit. Sometimes I'm weary and tired of this constant fight. Alot of times my prayers are sent up to God with tears streaming down my face and my knees aching from kneeling before God's heavenly throne for so long.

Then that still quiet voice comes. The voice that speaks peace and comfort to my heart. The voice that dries away my tears and tells me everthing is going to be ok.
Jesus - my Savior, my best friend

"Come to me all who are weary and I will give you rest," Jesus whispers to me. My bible is tear stained but through his holy words he reminds me that "when I am weak, He is strong."

The path is narrow...but leads to life.

I choose this narrow way - and I'm just not able to turn back.
