I drive to work everyday from Hampstead on rt. 121. When you drive a road as often as I do you learn all of the curves and bumps - I'm sure you've had the same experience. Another thing I learn is where the sun will be relative to the direction of my car. In other words, I learn the spots on my journey where I will be blinded by the light as a drive.
There are only a few choices available to me. First, I can turn around the car and return home - not likely. Second, I can come to a stop until the sun has moved - that's dangerous. Lastly, I can trust what I know about the road, despite mI have to trust that the road is there, even when I am not able to see it - the same curves that were there yesterday are there today.
Throughout our lives each one of us will be blinded by some difficulty or challenge: anger, hatred, health scare, job change, etc. These situations will make it difficult to see that path that God has for us. When this happens, we need to trust that the road is still there and keep walking, driving, running, etc. God is still there with a plan regardless of what we see or don't see.
This is where faith comes into - believing God is working and acting in our lives despite not seeing Him or the way He has created. No matter what gets in the way, we need to be confident that God is working to provide a path for us to accomplish the work in the Kingdom that He has planned for us.
Even when you are blinded and can't see God, trust Him and believe that the Holy Spirit is working in your life.
