”I won’t. I’ve got your hand, you’ll be fine.”
“Are you sure? I can’t see a thing.”
"It's going to be fine. I can see for both of us.”
I recalled “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path”* as we moved. I felt my guide turn us to the left, then to the right. I realized I’d been holding my breath and let it out. "How much longer?”
“Hang on, we’ve got a little ways to go yet.”
We zigged and zagged some more, but never once did I stumble, even when we had to go up and down, since my guide warned me about each step. Then we went straight for quite a ways. I found myself reciting another verse under my breath, “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”** Then I spoke to my companion, “Now where are we?”
“We’re almost there. Now, I’ll need you to walk behind me, just hold on to my shoulders. It’s a tight squeeze.”
Yet another verse came to mind, this time it was “For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”*** I followed my leader. I could feel walls close on each side, with barely enough room to get through.
“Here we are.”
My partner took the blindfold off. I squinted, allowing my eyes to adjust to the light. I looked back over the obstacle course we’d just finished, complete with the narrow cardboard tunnel at the end. “Wow, it’s amazing how hard it is to rely on someone else to lead the way, isn’t it?”
“Yeah, and now it’s your turn.” My partner handed me the blindfold, so I could lead him through the Faith Walk course.
