We have felt a nudge to start a little blog for a year. When I started feeling these nudges I kept thinking, “Seriously God? A blog? Um, no. I’d much rather continue on only reading and being encouraged by my favorite blogs. I’m not good with words anyhow. And I’m definitely not clever. And I’m just a wretched sinner who messes up daily.” I had plenty more excuses. My husband was onboard from the get-go and decided he wanted to be a part of it. I absolutely loved that idea, and we decided to give it a go!
But what really moved us to do this?
Our world that is waxing worse and worse. Our country that is waxing worse and worse. Our heavy hearts that are a result of all the ugly sin in this world. All the events that are happening one after another and another in our country. Digging into conversation about the nonsense of our culture, and our government, and, yes, even the church, is downright suffocating. It all has reminded us both that we are pilgrims passing through this world. And not only are we pilgrims passing through, we are pilgrims passing through and traveling a narrow road. A narrow road. The road that doesn’t have many folks traveling it. The road against mainstream. The difficult road. The one where you have to pick up your cross AND carry it. The strait way that leads to LIFE.
God gave us Navigating the Narrow Road to encourage our hearts (and hopefully yours!) as we journey this difficult, but rewarding path!
Join us as we see how He gently guides us down this road that ultimately leads to Life!
Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
(Matthew 7:13-14 ESV)
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7:13-14 KJV)
