“Lord,” Thomas said, “we don’t know where you are going, how can we know the way?”
Like Thomas I don’t know where I’m going. I don’t know where God is leading me. I’m afraid, doubtful of my abilities, uncertain what to do next.
Yet, I do know the Way and I know that it is his voice I’m following. I do know the truth and the truth has set me free. I do know the life and that life is the light of men. It shines in the darkness, yet the darkness does not overcome it.
I’m comfortable following Jesus into this uncertainty, into this darkness, into this unknowing. The paradox of my life in Christ, the absurdity of my calling, is that although I don’t know where I’m going I’m compelled to invite others to join me on the way.
