Today is Spiritual Journey Thursday, a day for me to spend some time turning toward God. Please feel free to join me on this journey each Thursday with Holly Mueller and friends. For the next several weeks, Holly will be featuring our one little words. Today's featured word is TURN, my one little word.
I have taken curves, a different path than what I expected. But this is when I learned that it is God's plan, not mine.
I have had detours. But this is when He taught me patience.
I have gone over speed bumps. But this is when He told me to slow down and be thankful.
I have have been given the wrong directions by people I trusted. But this is when He taught me about forgiveness.
I have made some wrong turns, turning left when I should have turned right. But this is when I learned about grace and mercy.
I have been lost. But this is when He taught me to follow Him.
As I make my turn toward Him, He has given me a roadmap, His word. There is never a dead end when we take the right turn, a turn toward Him.
I leave you with my devotion from Wednesday.
Trust is a golden pathway to heaven. When you walk on this path, you live above your circumstances. My glorious Light shines more brightly on those who follow this path of Life. Dare to walk on the high road with Me, for it is the most direct route to heaven. The low road is circuitous: twisting and turning in agonizing knots. There the air hangs heavy, an dark ominous clouds predominate. Relying on your own understanding will weigh you down. Trust in Me absolutely, and I will make your path straight.
