Wrong Way

      Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it.  ~Isaiah 30:21
     Last Sunday morning, after taking pictures of bald eagles, the five of us joined my husband’s youngest sister and her family for breakfast.  We had to walk about a quarter of a mile along narrow back roads to a family restaurant.  There was a surprising amount of traffic on the road.  When I saw the crowd walking toward this sign, I knew I had a photo opportunity.
    Has you life had some “Wrong Way” in it.  Have you been a bit lost or in the wrong place?  Maybe things are flying at you too fast and you are unsure of your journey and even your destination.
     We can change our wrong way direction and give the control of our life to the God who allows U-turns.
     For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  ~Jeremiah 29:11
     Our Savior wants to lead us to our destination.  To the place where we will never be lost.   To a place of perfect peace and love.  A place that was prepared just for us.
     "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going." Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?" Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.   ~John 14:1-6
     Jesus told us that there is a narrow gate.  Sooner or later all of us will pass through it.  This may come unexpectedly through accident or perhaps we will know and be given some time to prepare.  Take comfort that the narrow gate will be wide enough for two, You and your Savior.  The One who has led you all through life will not desert you then, and where He is, there you will be also.
     If you find yourself walking the wrong way take time to speak to God and let Him set you back on the right path.

"The narrow gate is big enough for two." Those words made me smile. My Jesus and I--hand in hand. So thankful I don't have to go alone!

Dear Donna
Jesus is the narrow gate and we can even now enter throug Him into His eternal resurrected life and be blessed with all the spiritual blessings in Christ. I think the vers goes something like us in Jesus, Jesus in us and we all in God! Amazingly wonderful. From Janice's.
