A Fork in the Road

Yogi Berra was a hall-of-fame catcher and former manager for the New York Yankees, but probably best known for his pithy, confusing, and humorous quotes. Some of my favorites:

-"A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."
-"Baseball is 90% mental. The other half is physical."
-"You can observe a lot just by watching."
-"Always go to other people's funerals. Otherwise, they won't come to yours."
-"The future ain't what it used to be."
-"You got to be careful. If you don't know where you are going, you might not get there."

And my favorite:
-"When you come to the fork in the road, take it."

Have you ever felt that way in your spiritual journey? Have you had a 'fork in the road', or a crossroads with a question about the Bible or your faith?

Unfortunately what can happen when we come to a crossroads, a place of a question we have never experienced before, a 'fork' if you will...we stop. Instead of pressing in to find an answer, we can just stop our feet. And unanswered questions linger in the back of our minds and are nagging us to resolve them and find an answer.

Remember this:
1) There are always more questions. There is always more to understand about the Almighty. God is infinite and we will not fully comprehend Him in His fullness until we are with Him. (1 Cor 13:12)
2) Don't be afraid. When you find one of those questions staring you in the face, press into it without fear and with great fervor. Relax, ask questions and seek God for guidance.
3) The ultimate answer we need is Christ Himself and Christ is bigger than all our wrestlings.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell.
Colossians 1:15-19

So what do we do when we are at a fork in road of our faith?
In the words of Yogi Berra:

Take it.
