If you’ve ever gone for a long walk through the woods, you probably know there’s a certain point where you need to make your way back. You started out when the sun was bright and the day was warming up, but now it’s getting to dusk and darkness will soon overwhelm the path making it difficult to return to the safety of camp. So now is the time to make your way back.
Many times we use that same phrase when talking about our walk with God. We start out with Him, but then we venture off into the darkness of sin. We gradually step farther and farther from our Lord. But at some point we look around and realize we are lost. We need to make our way back to God.
