I had a dog once who was scared to cross a bridge . . .
Maybe she was unsure about what lay on the other side. Or maybe her precious paws didn’t like the feel of the worn wood. Or maybe it was the feeling of it being narrow or closed in . . .
We waited patiently and tugged ever so gently at her leash while luring her with yummy treats and lots of love and encouragement. It took awhile, but eventually she got to the other side. It seemed like such a little feat but I was jumping for joy and so proud of my precious pup! Now we could continue our journey together and I could introduce her to all sorts of wondrous sights, sounds, and smells along our hike.
There was a time that I too was scared to cross a bridge. The bridge back to God. I didn’t know or really understand what was on the other side, so I remained where I was . . . separated from God’s presence due to my sin. After years of searching for peace and fulfillment in life, I finally crossed that bridge and discovered the joy of living in God’s presence!
“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore” ~Psalm 16:11.
Dear friend, Jesus is calling, waiting, luring you with His love. If you feel a gentle tug at your heart today, will you trust Him and walk across that bridge? Today, you can receive the joy of God’s presence within your heart and be assured of where you’ll spend eternity!
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
