fear and trembling seized me and made all my bones shake. Job 4:14
We live on the Missouri River. It is a beautiful place. There is a bike path that runs along the river. We have lived here three years. I have been on the trail twice. It is a beautiful place that scares me to death. You see, it is close to the river and is a popular place for the rattlesnakes to hang out.
On Saturday I conquered another fear. We put little one in the bike trailer and we decided to go for a little ride. It was wonderful. It was peaceful. (We didn't see any snakes = bonus)
My silly fear of snakes has prevented me from enjoying this beautiful place. I am home with my girls all summer long and we never go on the bike path.
I keep thinking about this road less travelled. I have avoided this place because I have been afraid of what I might see. By avoiding this place I have missed out on another one of God's beautiful creations.
I found God on Saturday in a place that I least expected to find Him. God is everywhere, I just need to look for Him.
