This summer, my husband and I did something hard.

We built a road in the middle of the wilderness.

It it was a lot of work. But it had to be done. Because we are building a place of refuge in that wilderness place… And to get to that place of refuge we will need a way.

We cleared sagebrush. Moved dirt. Dug out rocks. Once it was smooth, we lined the path with rock so that the way would be clearly marked.

The next day I could barely walk. Or lift my arms. That is how hard we worked.

But the job is done. The way prepared. Now the refuge can be built.

This morning I read in Isaiah 42. “I will make waste mountains and hills…and I will bring the blind by a way that they know not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do and I will not forsake them”

I thought about how The Lord prepares the way.

And I realized it is hard work. But He knows the place of refuge that we need. And He will make sure the way is clearly marked.

I am grateful for Jesus Christ.

For who He is in my life.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life” John 14:6
