It's always kind of fun to toss around some "what-ifs" isn't it? After all, we live our lives that way, don't we? Nothing is super certain. We're constantly given paths to choose, forks in the road. And, most of the time, we feel like we're all alone in choosing which path we go down.

What if we weren't? And I don't just mean the all-knowing, ever-present, all-loving presence of God. Because, I feel like we kind of get bombarded with that mentality a lot. Yes: God is here with me. I know. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

But I'm talking about the presence of God in one another. Because, and I've said this a million times before and I'll say it a billion times over, God put us here together for that purpose, didn't he? To be together? To get stuck at that crossroads together and say, "So, um...which one are you thinking about?"

Sure, we may still technically be stuck. But wouldn't you rather be stuck with someone who's just as stuck as you are? All those ideas you haven't thought to try, all those thought processes you've glanced over - they may be able to see them much more clearly. And, let's face it: you're more likely to make a decision with someone else there telling you it will either work or not work. The last thing you want to be is stalled.

So ask the "what-if" questions. But don't just ask them of yourself. Ask them to those around you. Not only might we have the same questions, we might actually have some answers that you haven't thought of yet. And you might have some answers that we haven't thought of yet.

It's honestly the Big Man's amazing way of reminding us that we're not alone. That He's with us, and that He's given us friends along the way. Reach out. Ask the questions. Give the answers you have.

You are not alone.

"And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
~ Matthew 28:20

Much love!
