Roads can take us to a lot of places. There are interstate highways, state highways and county roads. We can travel on paved roads, dirt roads and off road.
We follow road signs, our GPS or read a map. We can get there by the quickest route or by the scenic route. Roads can be well lit or so dark that you end up hanging your head out of the window to make sure you're staying on pavement.
We travel through the woods, up hill and down, by the shore and over mountains. We take roads through cities, town and communities. We go over bridges, through tunnels and take ferries.
We might take a taxi or a service, the underground or the L. We might travel by car, by train or on an airplane. We may take the road that leads directly to our destination or we may end up taking the road less travelled. There may be roadblocks, construction, or even an unexpected detour along the way.
Roads. Whatever road you take in life, take the one God directs you to take. Wherever we travel in life, when we stay on course, following God's directions, we will find blessings and joy in the adventure of the journey. Find Him and you'll find your way.
Psalm 119: 1-2 MSG
"You’re blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road revealed by God. You’re blessed when you follow his directions, doing your best to find him."
