A Path in the Forest

This is Day 4 of “31 Days of Whimsical Encounters” – part of the #write31days challenge. To read all the posts in order, please visit the overview page.


I found myself in a forest. The massive and abundant trees were suffocating. I needed out. I was beginning to panic, weaving in and out through the trees trying to find my way out. Instead, with every turn I seemed to find myself deeper in the dark forest. I felt myself starting to hyperventilate. And then I heard the Lord’s voice, “SIT!” It boomed within the trees. “Wait. And I will show you the path. There IS a path. Sit down and you’ll see the path. It will be lit up for you.”

I obeyed. I sat and waited. Suddenly, I turned and noticed a picnic set up right before me. “He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies.” Peace returned. I could sit still and trust Him.
