Getting through the Maze of Life

Living each and every day may feel like wandering inside a maze looking for the exit. Not knowing whether we should turn right or left at the junction, we choose to depend on our instincts. If we're lucky enough, we'll find a promising path or else dead ends are unavoidable.

Now as a Christian, I often think shouldn't we get a better life than that? I mean, we have a BIG God.

To get through a maze, there's a method called "The left-hand method". Simply place your left-hand on the left-hand wall upon entering the maze and follow that wall all the way around. The principle is to never remove your hand from the wall.

Lets carefully observe how we live our lives till this moment. The left-hand method would not work if we let go of the left-hand wall. It requires us to stick to the left-hand wall no matter how long we have to walk around and the number of cul-de-sacs we met on the way. The same principle goes for our lives. We ought to hold on to Him no matter how long we have to wait and the number of obstacles we have to face.

If after a few cul-de-sacs, a man decided to let go of the left-hand wall then he may get lost in the maze. If he doesn't wait patiently while following the wall all around, then he might let it go and trapped inside the maze. If he thought the other path is more promising than following the left-hand wall, he might be up for a wild goose chase.

The truth is we do have a better life than those who get lost and trapped inside the maze. God is our left-hand wall, the only way to the exit. Wait patiently, fight for your faith in Him no matter what!

"My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him." Psalm 62:5
