I once thought of the narrow path as a double track through the woods as compared to the multi-line highway where everyone else was, so I left the ways of my friends and ventured off into unknown territory.
Later, I thought that the narrow path was the single track where I had to leave the comfort of the truck propelling me along – and instead ride my bike, pedaling along under my own power.
Even later, I thought the narrow path was like a tight rope that I had to carefully walk perfectly so I left my bike behind, as I tried so hard to balance and to never fall off.
And finally, I found that it was thinner than a hair and I had to leave myself behind and walk with Him. But when I did that, I learned how to soar in His strength and power.
Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it. [Deut. 30:19; Jer. 21:8.]
