unschedule shortcuts

Well today I went on an excursion on our 62 acres at school. I want you to picture this a not-so-country Guy walking through many different thickets of woods. I was walking through the woods to take a shortcut to the office on our property. In our shortcuts in our life we always try to take shortcuts. I was walking, ducking, and bending trying to find a path to the office. I knew there was one, because I saw others take it. I never followed them ,but I saw them come out on the other side alright. There goes so irony for you ha. I was walking and to my amazement there was a streams were lush and fertile as I took steps. I was getting lost talking to God while in the midst of my understanding saying God I know you can help me right now. So, I couldn’t find a path in the thicket so I retraced my steps not moving forward but walking backwards instead of forward. So, I went along this treeline which, looked like it would take me to this perfect trail. I knew was determined to get to the other side. I saw a hill ,but there was an obstacle a stream in the marshland. I was walking on logs and then the steady logs were gone and there was a gap and a tree I was holding on to. I have ventured far into my steps that turning back would be stupid in my own little thoughts. I was seriously hanging on to this tree breaking off limbs to make the walk on the water easily instead of going back I truly thought I could get to the other side. I mean this shortcut was becoming an obstacle. I didn’t even know, I was by myself and seeing my stubbornness. By this time I had my feet wet my pants were muddy and I was tired and sweating from a shortcut that was suppose to take me no time. I finally got out and was walking up the road to the office and being humble in such a major way. I heard God say this we take shortcuts in life make our own decision and then when we want to find the way out we call on Him. I learned some major things:
1. Never take shortcuts
2. rejoice in the path you are walking in no matter who is taken shortcuts.
3. Humbleness is a character quality.
4. Preparation is a gift.
