Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
(Proverbs 3:5, 6 – NIV)
Last summer Rhonda and I did something that we are not going to be able to do in this summer in our Covid-19 world. We ticked an item off my bucket list, traveling to Washington D.C. and to Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. We hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail and drove the Skyline Drive, an historic 105-mile route that traverses Shenandoah National Park.
Each time I drive in the mountains I am reminded of Proverbs 3:5-6 and a personal question gnaws at me: Why does trusting in God lead to “straight paths” instead of a life filled with wonder and adventure around each corner? I wonder if people in Saskatchewan or Kansas understand this verse differently from those who live in British Columbia or Colorado?
