My two feet do not go as fast as her four and in a short time, I am trailing far behind. She trots on, not even looking back to see if I'm there. So, I taught her the command, "come-back." We start out together leaving the house, but soon Molly is ahead and I have to remind her, "Molly, that's far enough. Come back."
Sometimes, I go a different direction that she is going. And it's, "Come back. We need to go this way." And of course, especially when it's below zero, I think it's time to turn back home. And I say, "Come back, Molly."
Our walks with God are surely no different. We trot through life, thinking we know where we're going and often not even looking to see if we're still walking with the One who knows. God often puts circumstances into our path to make us stop, and He says, "Child, come back. Walk with me." How's your walk today? Are you going a different direction from God? Do you need to pause and come back? Stop trotting away on your own, turn around, and come back home.
Isaiah 30:21 And your ears will hear a word behind you, "This is the way, walk in it."
