Ever since the time change I have had to run in the dark two times a week. This is kind of cool because I have been running trails and roads with a headlamp and flashlight. This also makes Sat long run look really good because I get to do those during the day time:)
Tonight as I was running I got to thinking how our Christian walk is like my running in the dark. We are surrounded by darkness so dark you can not see 4 ft away from the light. However as long as we stay in the light we can keep on the right trail, path or road. As Christians we are surrounded by darkness, but as long as we are focused on the light of Christ we can keep going with out getting lost in the night. Some times our light gets dim and we have a hard time seeing were we are to go just like running on trails in the dark with just a head lamp. It is so easy to lose the trail because you are so focused on the path right in front of you you dont look for the trail signs. We get that way in our walks with Christ we get so focused on where we are and how things are going on right around us that we forget sometimes to look for the obvious directions from God.
We all need to remember that its the narrow path that leads to Christ and that we need to stay in the light to follow that path.
