E. Stanley Jones tells of a missionary who was lost in an African jungle, nothing around him but bush and a few cleared places. Finally he found a hut and asked the owner if he could get him out. The native said he could.

“All right,” said the missionary, “show me the way.”

The native said, “Walk,” so they walked and hacked their way through unmarked jungle for more than an hour.

The missionary began to have some anxiety about his guide. “Are you quite sure this is the way? Where is the path?”

The native’s response, “Sir, in this place there is no path. I am the path.”

God does not guarantee an easy road – but he does promise he will never forsake us.
