Yes, first there is the headlight of a car traveling down a street with signs of a storm that has passed. The storm has left many ruts, making the travel to the fill-up (gasoline) station a little nasty. But that's only the beginning of what's in store. After the station, there is a crossing. The choice being whether to turn to the right or left - or choose the road ahead.
May I liken this to our walk with the Lord. Many times it is only His Light that leads us down a road that has drenched our very being. In life's storms we would drown if possible but there is always His headlight guiding us as we go through (repeat, GO THROUGH) the storm to the other side. The refilling station supplies the strength to go on after weathering the storm. After that, it is our choice as to which way to go. We can say it's too hard to follow this path so I'll make a turn to something a little easier. Easier? Hmm. Or, we can elect to go on in a straight direction, seeing storm clouds on the horizon. If that's what we choose, after another storm or two, it won't be long before everything will be bright and clean. There's something to say when we decide to use the road that keeps our journey headed straight toward Heaven. Knew you'd agree.
