What road are you driving today? Where is it taking you?
Roads take many different shapes and forms. Some are winding with a myriad of loops, switchbacks, ups and downs. Some feel very safe, like a highway paved through a vast open plain. Others feel dangerous like a narrow lane chiseled into the side of a steep mountain. There may be detours, backtracks, and dead ends that catch a driver by surprise, but there’s always a way to correct for them. Some roads are straight and easy to drive.
The good news is that whatever shape, form or contour the road takes that you are driving, all streets are connected to the one road that gets us all to the same place at the end of our trip—the final resting place of Truth.
If the pathway ahead of you looks dark and dreary, the light of Christ is present to illuminate your way and show you how to go and what to do next.
If you feel weak, the strength of Christ is present to lift you up, get you on your feet and moving again.
If you’ve made a mistake and regret past actions, Christ is present to redeem that error, give you a fresh new view to move forward with and leave the past behind.
If you see a huge obstacle before you, Truth is present to dissolve that obstruction and remove it from your way.
If you are mired in evil thoughts and can’t think of a single good thing, as dawn follows the night, it’s inevitable that those dark thoughts break and the light of truth and love dawn.
If disease threatens to halt your progress, Truth is present to cure that disease and restore your health.
God reigns supreme throughout His universe, and there isn’t any material belief, circumstance or situation that is going to keep you from discovering the fullness of God’s good, one way or the other. It’s inevitable!
So, whatever conditions you face, keep driving! Whether through fog, sleet, hail, blizzard, hurricane, or ice, God is with you. Christ empowers you to overcome all adverse conditions and to keep your vehicle moving down the pathway of progress.
There is one destination for everyone to arrive at, the one and only place Life allows us to be—at home with God in Truth and Love.
