The Ideal Trail

That ideal mountain trail is one that Jesus carved out before us and it still stands today. It’s the one we will all travel with the hope of one day spending eternity with Him. It’s a trail full of ups and downs, overlooks and outlooks. It’s a trail that will take us through the miry clay and brings us out on the Rock. It’s a trail that seems narrow but leads to wide green pastures. This trail I speak of will be one of eternity and  every day, I’m excited to be walking it. I will meet him who forged it first. I will worship Him who created every nook and alley. I will dine with him with new wine and sit by the glassy sea as we converse about times gone by and time to come. This trail is a heavenly trail and although many see it as one with boundaries, I see it as one of freedom. Some see it as a trail of misery, I see it as a trail of love. Some see it as a trail of hardship, I see it as one of delight. Some see it as problematic… I see it as IDEAL!

Ideal trail is one without end

One thought on “The Ideal Trail

  1. Life is definitely think life is like a walk in the woods. I often find myself asking if I am on the right trail. It’s so easy to get lost in the woods. Especially since my moral compass is always off a few degrees thanks to my sinful natire. It’s a good thing that God gave us a compass in the Holy Spirit and a map with the Word. If I use those two things I’ll never be on the wrong path.

    Also, I think that mountain trail is narrow and seldom traveled.

    Matthew 7:13-14 (ESV)
    The Narrow and Wide Gates
    “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
