Navigating through life has its many ups and downs. You never know what the day will bring. Pope Paul said that "all life demands struggle". I equate it to a pleasant minefield. It may be beautiful and pleasing to the eyes but be careful where you step!
One minute you are driving along, making plans for the future when out of nowhere you are sideswiped on the road. One minute you are planning a trip to Hawaii and then a hurricane blows into the islands.
Mines are not easy to see and you don't know they are there until you step on one. By then it is too late. No one gets to go through life without navigating their share of mines along the way.
What if you had a guide who could help you navigate your way through the minefield of life? Wouldn't that be advantageous? I would think so. It just so happens that the Creator who put all this in place has also provided just that resource. His name is Jesus and He has set in place a roadmap for all of us to follow that will help us avoid the mines of life. There will still be struggle but you can minimize it with His help and guidance.
He laid all this out in His Book of Wisdom known to us as the Bible. It may be a big book with a lot of pages but it is advantageous to us to tackle this effort. If it just seems too much then just read the Book of Proverbs. It is only 31 chapters and at a chapter a day you could finish it in a month. Once you finish just that book of the Bible, you will be head and shoulders over the majority of those who are still trying to avoid the mines on their own perilous journey.
"This also comes from the Lord of hosts, Who is wonderful in counsel and excellent in guidance."
Start your journey now, pray for guidance through the minefield of life and know that He will not let you down. Your willingness to lean on Him is His invitation to assist and He always RSVP's!
Have a wonderful rest of the week and may God bless you in your ongoing walk with Him.
God always answers His kneemail.
