The Answer to All Our Questions

“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”
Isaiah 40:8

I’m convinced that the only way to know right from wrong in a world gone wrong is to cling to the Word of God.

The Word unchanging.

The Word that changes everything.

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”
Matthew 24:35

If you’re searching for direction, let the Word of God be your guide. It holds the answers to all our questions.

Father, you have blessed us with your Word. Help us open up the holy pages, open our hearts and allow you to open our eyes to the truth.


When You Don’t Know How to Get Home

You’ve probably heard the term, Directionally Challenged. That’s me. But I know I’m not alone. I’ve met other people who are just like me. And it can be frustrating.

I recall an incident a while back when I ventured out to another part of the city for lunch with a friend. Getting there was okay, but coming back home was a nightmare. Major construction made it difficult to navigate and I found myself driving aimlessly through congested intersections and shady side-streets.

Without a GPS and my printed out google maps now worthless, I realized I had no idea how to get home. The anxiety was too much to bear so I did what any directionally challenged woman would do. I called my husband.

I didn’t want to seem desperate, but let’s face it. I WAS DESPERATE!

Making that call was a little humiliating but it was the smartest thing I could have done. And I wished I had called him sooner. Because he knows those roads better than I do and he was able to calmly direct me to more familiar surroundings.

And so, thankfully, I can report that my ordeal had a happy ending. 

That experience reminds me of the way God lovingly and patiently guides us on our journey home. Sometimes, I get off course and lose my way. But when I humble myself and ask for direction, He is always available. More reliable than GPS or google maps.

And the thing is, when you realize you’re lost, it’s a comforting thing to know the One who knows the way home.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
Psalm 32:8
