when the back road is the right road

when the back road is the right road

The road of obedience often runs through back roads that look nothing like success, where no one in the visible world is applauding. 

The Lord doesn’t require us to succeed where we’re sent: only that we serve where we’re sent. We supply the service: the success is God’s to define, and to fulfill, when and as He wills.

Just preachin’ to myself over here.
