Monday of the Second Week of Advent
All the paths of the Lord are love and faithfulness
to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
This morning, I see the remnant of the single path I created walking across the yard to retrieve the snow shovel from the shed, the endless possibilities seemingly vanished.
It is tempting on the Advent journey, on any journey with Christ, to think of there being one way, the way, to arrive. Or to believe that a life of faith consists in discovering or uncovering the designated path that God has set before us. But the holy does not abide by such limits. What makes it God’s way is to walk in love and faithfulness.
A new day opens before me. The possibilities have not vanished at all.
