Last night was the last night of a weekly summer bible college group that I’ve been attending. It’s held at a sweet couple’s house in Norman with the driveway the length of a football field. I left a little earlier than usual and found myself walking that long driveway alone last night in the dark.
As I was walking I was comparing that driveway to the season I’m currently walking through and what it all meant (cause writers have to look for signs in everything).
I couldn’t see the end of the driveway because it was so dark and I probably couldn’t see five feet on either side of me if I tried. It’s a nice driveway, no bumps or gravel, very smooth, I didn’t have to worry about tripping or falling just walking.
Honestly, I can’t think of what it means to me. I feel like I’ve been walking alone in the dark lately, but it hasn’t been smooth, it’s been rough.
Does the softness of the driveway reflect the relationship I’ve had with God recently? Almost non-existent? Luke warm?
What about the darkness? Where am I going? Why can’t I see the end of the road? Why do I want to?
Am I walking boldly towards something or quickly running away from something? Is it about the walk down the driveway or what waits at the end of it?
I’m sorry, I know this is full of questions but think about it, what driveway are you on right now? What does it look like?
What is he saying to you as you read this?
