Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
Often in life we are confronted with choices concerning which path to take. The answer is not always apparent since we do not know where the path may lead and at times we regret the direction we pursued. However, there is always the option to retrace our steps and alter the course of our walk.
Ponder the path of your feet,
And let all your ways be established.
The Bible exhorts us to ponder our steps to establish a sure, steadfast path. When the Lord Jesus was on earth, He taught His followers about two paths:
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Matthew 7: 13-14
The Lord taught that it is easy to go with the flow and follow the crowd down the broad road. This is the path we are born on due to our fallen nature. If we never make a conscious decision to leave it, the Bible warns that our destiny will be eternal destruction. This is why the Lord Jesus came to earth, to procure salvation by His atoning death on the cross, followed by His glorious resurrection. He conquered death to bring us life. We start to walk on the narrow road the moment we turn, i.e. repent of our ways and follow Christ as our Lord and Saviour.
The narrow path, while it has its struggles, leads us to spiritual depths and freedom. Many have testified to finding life in Christ while being freed from various addictions and harmful behaviour. The video is an example of one such story.

You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Life with God is something I would not exchange for anything in the world! It is not about religion, but a personal relationship with Him. The path of life brings God's direction into our lives and leads ultimately to eternal life with Him. It is well to ask, Which path am I on?
