Finding Direction

Show me the path where I should go, O Lord; point out the right road for me to walk. Lead me; teach me, for you are the God who gives me salvation. I have no hope except in you. Overlook my youthful sins, O Lord! Look at me instead through eyes of mercy and forgiveness, through eyes of everlasting love and kindness.

The Lord is good and glad to teach the proper path to all who go astray; he will teach the ways that are right and best to those who humbly turn to him. And when we obey him, every path he guides us on is fragrant with his lovingkindness and his truth. Psalms 25:4-10 (TLB)


Your words are a flashlight to light the path ahead of me and keep me from stumbling. Psalms 119:105 (TLB)


Arlene Timber-Henry is from St.Maarten. When she began using a smart-watch fitness tracker She had received from a friend, Arlene faced two obstacles: figuring out how to charge it and synchronizing the watch with her smart phone so they could share data. Because her friend had misplaced both the original packaging and the instruction manual. Arlene went online hoping to find the answers she needed. To her dismay, nothing on the watch indicated what brand or model it was. It wasn't until the original owner sent a product description that Arlene realized it was a completely different brand than she had thought. However, once Arlene entered the correct information, the synchronization process was easy.

How often we try to figure things out ourselves, without seeking God's direction! Somehow we end up going in a roundabout way, much like the Israelites did in the book of Exodus when they left Egypt. Just as God provided the navigational tools they needed - a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night - God wants to direct the steps of our lives. As we pray, read the Bible, and yield to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, God will help us find our way out of the mistakes of our past and enable us to look toward the future with confidence and hope.


Prayer: Dear God, thank you for guiding us on this journey called life, and for the assurance that you will never lead us in the wrong direction, in Jesus' name. Amen.
