THE UNKNOWN PATH
Ever been somewhere you did not want to go?
Working the Tsunami in a village where many family members had died from the rushing flooding waters of the ocean. I was asked by a local lady that had 8 to 9 kids with her, to go look with them for others that had not been found. Taken back by this request, that they would want to go looking for family or neighbors that had not been recover.
The area was a rice field toward the back side of the village. The kids proceeded like they where on a school field trip. My thought and prayer was Lord I need help. First off I don’t believe these children need to see more death and I could not dissuade them to this type of field trip. Walking on paths that border the water soak rice field, looking for snakes or any other dangers, I start to pray with earnest to God that he would block our path or for us not to find any bodies.
Before the Tsunami the fields where open and no fencing was in place. Since then someone had placed new barb-wire fencing, which made it impossible to go further without getting totally soaked to travel the areas.
God had it planned out before I had gotten there to block this from all of us. Sadly, two days later adults did recover bodies in the area where we could not travel.
God will direct our paths if we trust in him. Psalm tells us that He will not forsake us if we acknowledge Him in all our ways.
Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:10
