Life is a Journey
May 2024
Compass on map

Before we start on a journey we decide where to go. We might look at a map or a guide book, read reviews and ask others for advice about the route.

 

There may be problems along the way: rain or snow, taking the wrong turning, being hungry and tired, even an accident or injury.

 

There will be good times perhaps with family, meeting new friends, times of peace and reflection, walking on a beach or through a woodland, reaching a hill top after a difficult climb to see a magnificent view.

 

The Bible is our guide for life, a map and guide book to help us keep to the right path, walking in God’s ways, correcting us if we make a wrong turn – but only if we read and think about it. Only then will we see the destination that God has promised to those who try to follow the true way of life to life in His Kingdom.

 

Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for ever more. Psalm 16:11

 

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Psalm 23:3-4

 

Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.   Jeremiah 21:8

 

Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth

Psalm 86:11

 

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105

 

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth , and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.    John 14:6

Thank You
April 2024

How many times have you said “thank you” today? How many times today has somebody said it to you? And how do you feel when somebody doesn’t thank you for something you have done for them?

 

It is all too easy to forget to pause and say “thank you”.

 

Jesus made a point of giving thanks when he was about to have a meal, because he knew that food doesn’t just appear without somebody making it happen. He gave thanks to God, because ultimately He provides everything.

 

The word “thank” is strongly connected with “think”. We can be thoughtless, in too much of a hurry to be grateful. Taking time to be thankful has many positive benefits for us and for others. It makes us stop and think. The Bible puts it like this:

 

“…Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him”. (Colossians 3:17).

 

Imagine if everybody did that! The world would be very different. And, one day, it will happen.
