Direction For The Journey

On the way to church Sunday, I turned down a different street to avoid traffic...and long traffic lights. One of my grandsons in the back seat said, "This isn't the way to go to church Gran D!"

I told him "Yes it is. You can't always tell where you are going just by looking out of the window."

It occurred to me later just how true that statement is. Our life journeys often have twists and turns. Sometimes it seems like we are at a dead end. Often we think that we may have taken a wrong turn, only to find out later that it was the right path after all.

Wouldn't it be great if we had an internal GPS navigation system so we would always know where to go? Well, as Christians we do have one...the Spirit of God that lives within us. He doesn't need a Global Positioning System to know where we are...or where we are going.

I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. (Proverbs 4:11 NIV)

In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling. (Exodus 15:13)
