I was watching a movie called The HighwayMen a couple of weeks ago. It is a very good movie about 2 Highwaymen on the search of Bonnie and Clyde. One quote stood out to me in the movie and it contained the words “one turn on the trail”. As this phrase was used I interpreted to mean that one decision, one turn on our path could change the trajectory of our lives.
The turns, decisions, we make could be deliberate or they could be the spur of the moment decision done with little thought. These paths that we take have consequences and they could be good or bad depending on the decision. The outcomes both good and bad effect not only ourselves but also others.
Help us, Lord, to choose our paths wisely. Help us to keep your plan in mind when we make choices, as well as how any decision we make can positively or negatively affect others. If we make a mistake and take a wrong “turn on the trail” please gently guide us back to you.
Thank You, God!
