Finding the Way

Have you ever been lost in a big city? Back before GPS I would go to a big city and get lost. In a way, it was fun searching for my way to my destination. But there were times panic would set in as I realized I really was hopelessly lost.

The big complication is in an unfamiliar city I didn’t know where I was at So anyone I called for help couldn’t really help me. I needed to know where I was in order to get correct directions to where I was going.

gpsMany people today use a GPS (Global Position Satellite). All we have to do is type in where we are, where we want to go, and most the time it will get us there. However, if there is unreported road closings due to construction or an accident we have to change our direction. The GPS will say “Recalculating” and within moments you will once again be going in the right way. Stick to the GPS directions and soon anyone will successfully reach his or her destination.

Sometimes life brings unexpected and often unwanted circumstances that make our

detours

 

What Way Do I Go?

 

planned destination either impossible or very difficult. Multiple Sclerosis totally messed up my plan in life. I had a home, car and good paying job at 21 when I suddenly lost vision in one eye. Within 6 months I was approved for disability. I experienced many times of paralysis and blindness. It seemed the GPS of my life had to keep on “Recalculating.” Things I used to do, I know longer can do. There came a time I felt like the GPS of my life was broken; lost in despair and without hope.

The greatest lesson I learned was the need for a plan but not just for life here. Life here can be very disappointing. I needed an everlasting HOPE. I found it! My life is still full of the changes I do not like as my body ages and MS continues to try to destroy my body. BUT I accepted Jesus Christ and I am no longer lost. My destination is the ultimate one and all hell coming against me can not change it. Jesus Christ is my Savior and LORD and He is preparing for me a place. I can and I do keep the “joy set before me” in sight. Heaven is my final destination and nothing and no body can take it away from me. I know where I am going.

John 3:7

Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again. 

Do you know where you are going ? Do you know how to get there? It is good to have goals such as graduating from college or a job with a certain company. It is also good to plan to get married and have a family. But the MOST important destination is one for which one must be prepare. If you don’t take this seriously you still will have a destination but it will be the wrong direction; hell. SO please take this serious. Eternity is a forever and forever is a long long time. It is the ultimate destination that we all have a choice or direction from which GPS to choose. My GPS is God’s Provided Salvation.

Do you know where you are going? Do you know The Way?

John 14:6

6 Jesus *said to him,“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

The Way

Longing For The Day To Be Together

Do you love someone so much that you never want to be apart? Do you hearthave a heart to heart connection with someone?  Do you long to see their smile or feel their warm embrace? It’s a joy to hear them laugh and see him/her walk through the door!  The times you spend together are the Best moments of your life. When a person completes you and you complete him/her it is like heaven on earth. There is a longing to be with each other.

Can you imagine being with and loving someone for so long that it seems like forever? Then something happens that separates you. Each day you go through the motions, do your duties and even do them with joy but inside there is a longing for that day when you will be together again.

There is another One Who loves you like that and so much and more.

Jesus came to earth to do the will of His Father. He was with His Father since before the beginning of time. Imagine the physical torture, the mental anguish, and the rejection of men during the time He was on the Cross. He changed history and our destiny. For the first time ever, His Father had to turn His back on Him because all the sins of the world were placed on Him as He hung and died on the cross. Jesus, the perfect sacrifice for our sins – had to be separated from His Father. The pain and torture of death on the cross pales in comparison of that of being separated from the One Who loves him. But the Joy of obedience and making a Way for you to be saved was worth it all.

Hebrews 12:2-3 NASB who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

jesushugJesus rose again on the 3rd day, redeem us from sin and is ALIVE now. Do you know Jesus? Without Christ, you will never experience love like the love of GOD and His Presence. This I know, not just because my Bible tells me so… because I experience His love. When you choose to accept Jesus as your LORD and Savior you will know LOVE for yourself.  And One day we will be absent from our bodies and present with the LORD — no more longings.
