Life is a journey. We all have unique paths or roads to traverse. But it’s not always a smooth ride. It gets bumpy at times. I have always wondered why can’t the road be smooth all the way till the end. Why should there be ups and downs in life? Why should I undergo trials and sufferings? When I’m down with depression I plead with the Lord to make my path a bit easier to walk and I doubt whether God listens to such prayers. And, I have seen that God never changes the path or gives a smoother one. But, He responds with more love and grace and does something better…..He changes me instead.

Such rough paths helps me to stop and analyse my life and enables me to have a completely different perspective of life. Suddenly there’s a closeness to Him that I’ve never known before. There’s always a newness and growth in my life whenever I come out of such dark periods. He showers me with His love and gives a lot more grace to tread the same old, rough and narrow path. I feel that with God’s love and grace we’ll be able to walk without falling in this journey called life.

I’ve been treading this rough path for the past few years and it has changed me for better. But the journey is far from over. There’s still a long way to go……….

While I’m on this journey…my only prayer is this:

Even if I have to tread an unknown terrain

Even if I have to cross a broken bridge

Even if I have to sail through a stormy sea

I will still follow You.

 

I dare not reason why

I dare not disobey

I’m just content to know

That Your LOVE is everlasting

And Your GRACE is never-ending.

 

– Martin.

  1. Martin…

    Bro I’m impressed at your creativity you have set up a beautiful blog here and I look forward to following your journey with you. Amen to your prayer with all my heart!

    I am just a child I have not seen much hardship in my life. That may change any moment, if God wills it or if I am found “ready”. But I know that nothing we receive is more than we can bear… 1 Corinthians 10.13 (one of the first bible verses I ever memorised! :-)) and all we need is to seek God’s grace and purpose and love in our lives… as you have already stated that makes our walk so beautiful and fulfilling.

    I look forward to visiting here often, and finally know I can “click” to visit Martin when I see a comment on my blog- lol.

    We are about 1 hour and 19 minutes into February now have a great month ahead! 🙂

    Love,
    Diana

  2. Diana,

    Thanks for visiting! Good to know that you like the design. Since this is the first time I’m blogging, I’m not sure whether I have done everything right. I still need to explore and experiment a lot to be a pro like you.

    You are right about I Cor 10.13. I seek comfort from this verse when the going gets rough.

    -Martin.

  3. Life is so lovely, yet difficult to fathom the type of the road which we would be heading sometimes. With God the master our leader and the wonderful guide book, The Holy Bible given by Him, we can be traveling with happiness all the way till we reach we journeys end :).
