The Road

The Road

The Road.

My road has been a long one. It’s been scary, lonely and sometimes full of pot holes. It’s also been full of laughter, tears, victories and miracles.

Sometimes I had to take some steps back because the road had obstacles.

And then there were times that I tried to pick up more of a load then I was authorized to carry. And because I was carrying more than I should, I broke down and got stuck.

Many times, I tried to take a different road, thinking that I knew a better way that would get me there faster.

Instead of asking for help, I tried to keep walking on my own, only to find myself lost. I would get farther and farther away from the road that would lead me to my destination.

Every step has brought me to where I am today. I’m still on that road.

But here’s the thing.

I’m NOT alone.

I’m not on the road by myself. There is someone walking with me. There is plan, a purpose and a process in this journey. And the journey IS worth it.

Don’t be afraid of the process.

Sometimes you have to take a step or two back so that you can deal with the potholes and obstacles in order for you to be able to keep moving forward.

Don’t take on a load that is NOT yours to take.

Take the road that Jesus has chosen for you. Stay on that road and do not drift off course.

If you find yourself in the ditch, ASK FOR HELP. Jesus WILL help you.

Don’t be afraid. You are not alone. When you have a relationship with Jesus, YOU ARE NEVER ALONE.

And don’t forget to appreciate the journey!

    I have been following your blog since you started. I love your humor but your straight-ahead approach to your walk with Christ. You don’t sugar-coat the issues and we need more of that, Sonya. I love the part when you said, “Sometimes you have to take a step or two back so that you can deal with the potholes and obstacles in order for you to be able to keep moving forward.” It’s time for me to move forward. So what you’re saying is that I need to “deal with my crud”. Right? I’m committing out loud that I will begin to “deal with my crud” and that I will not carry what I’m not supposed to.

    Help! I’m stuck! My family is great but they are dysfunctional. Somehow I made it my job to “fix” everyone. I never stopped to think about whether Jesus wanted me to take that on or not. I never asked him. Now, some of my family is upset with me and I feel stuck. How do you know when to walk away or when to stay and fight for those relationships?

    I need this today! Thank you for always pointing me to Jesus. I have been hurting over some things that has happened recently and I’m not appreciating my journey. I have felt alone. But after reading this, I realize I’m not alone. I haven’t been in the word as much as I should be and I can see now that I took my “own path” which has turned into a complete disaster. This really helped me. Thank you.

    Oh wow, Sonya. I needed to this today. I have been on a very difficult road. It seems like it’s never going to end. 2 years ago, I found out that I had breast cancer. I have two kids and they are the light of my life. In the middle of all of that, I found out that my husband of 12 years was having an affair. I can’t decide which pain was worse. We are now divorced but the scars of his betrayal still remain. I have been angry. I think mostly angry with God for allowing this to happen to me. I’m worried about my kids and how they’re going to process all of this as they grow up. Will they blame themselves? Will they blame me? This post was right on time and I realize that I was taking on more than I was authorized to carry. This was really great. Thank you for your heart. I am blessed by all of your words. They make me laugh. They make me cry. And they give me hope. Thank you for being willing to listen to us all as we dump our CRUD on you. I appreciate you so much.
