One day during one of our walks I realized a connection to my walk with Jesus. As a new Christian, God had me on a leash, but He let me wander ahead and experiment with my own paths. Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.” As a young believer God allowed me just enough space to explore each path before me. Like my beloved pup, I would often put my nose where it didn’t belong, but the Lord would always tug me back just before I got to the dead end. After traveling many paths and realizing the emptiness of reaching multiple dead ends, I learned that the best path to be on was the one my Master was on. He knew the way better than I did, and I could trust him to lead me to a place where I had all that I needed. God knew exactly what He was doing by allowing me to wander off the path just a bit. I chased relationships that left me brokenhearted and dreams that left me feeling empty. It took some time, but finally I came to realize there was nowhere else I’d rather be than walking right next to the Lord. Today I walk in complete freedom, leash-free, enjoying his company in my daily walk with Jesus.
