A woman confessed to a friend her confusion and hesitance about an important life decision she was facing. She professed to believe in God but could not bring herself to rely on her faith to help choose her path.

" How can I know I'm doing the right thing?" she asked. "How can I believe my decision will be right when I can't even see tomorrow?"

Her friend thought and finally said, "Here's how I look at it. You know when you're driving down a dark country road with no street lights to give you any notion of where you are? It's a little scary. But you rely on headlights. Now, those headlights may only show you ten yards of road in front of you, but you see where to go for that little stretch. And as you travel that ten yard stretch of road, the headlights show ten more yards, and ten more, until eventually you reach your destination safe and sound.

"That's how I feel about living by faith. I may not be able to see tomorrow, next week, or next year, but I know that God will give me the light to find my way when I need it."
