Sometimes my view of the world seems to be much like the way it was reflected in an old camera. Some of you can remember having to try and frame a photo while looking down at a view that was totally reversed from the scene you wanted. Like trying to cut your own hair in a mirror left became right, up became down. It all could get very confusing and frustrating trying to get your view to match your vision.
So it is with our view of life. We lose focus of the view we want and settle for what is reflected. We can see the gate and the path we need to follow. Sometimes we have to go right when it seems we should go left. Yet right is always right.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:14-14
The path is narrow and it is seldom straight. ††† en theos ††† jimwork
“If we claim that we experience a shared life with Him and continue to stumble around in the dark, we’re obviously lying through our teeth—we’re not living what we claim. But if we walk in the light, God himself being the light, we also experience a shared life with one another, as the sacrificed blood of Jesus, God’s Son, purges all our sin.” 1 John 1:7 The Message
Sometimes, in a fifty shades of grey world, it is hard to find the difference between the dark and the light.
Work hard at finding your light today!

I am not quite sure why everyone has shot holes in the stop sign. Myself, I would shoot at the yellow either or direction sign! The stop sign gives me a nice clear simple direction to follow, where as the other forces me to make a decision. I don’t know about you, but making a decision can be hard. Just stop it!

I have been wandering a desert for the last week. It is very much like walking in sand, your shoes get filled and heavy. Each step just seems to be followed by one more step. The direction is vague and the destination unknown.
“But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.” Robert Frost

“But as I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless–like chasing the wind. There was nothing really worthwhile anywhere.”
Solomon summarized all his attempts at finding life’s meaning as “chasing after the wind.” We feel the wind as it passes, but we can’t catch hold of it or keep it. In all our accomplishments, even the big ones, our good feelings are only temporary. Security and self-worth are not found in these accomplishments, but far beyond them in the love of God.
Think about what you consider worthwhile in your life–where you place your time, energy, and money. Will you one day look back and decide that these, too, were a “chasing after the wind”?
Check your compass every now & then on your journey. Are you heading the right direction††nada te turbe††jim
So how do they know when to start the journey ? They found “the way” a long time ago before the invention or even the thought of GPS. I think they used a different “G” than global.
We can follow the same “G” on our journey†††nada te turbe†††jim
