Trust the Journey

There is a place in the Appalachian Mountains that my family and I go to frequently. One of my sons works there right now. There are several different routes you can take to get there. One has a very winding road called “The Tail of the Dragon.” It is an 11-mile stretch of road with 318 curves.

The first time I drove it, it was by accident. The curves were so vast that the road fell off of GPS.

I kind of panicked for a second or two, but then recognized, I grew up in a state called “Mountain Mama” (WV) I’ve got this. 

It turned into a fun drive, and I’ve driven that way on purpose a few more times. The only downside is that the driver doesn’t get to enjoy the scenery, but the journey has a beauty of its own. 

The road ahead may be new or have some unfamiliar turns, and maybe the GPS can’t even show you the whole view, but you can trust God to navigate your way.

Look for God’s touches.

Trust what He has already brought you through to help you handle what’s ahead. 

You’ve got this!


Sometimes the wrong turn leads to the best experience.  


“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
