“Jesus said, “I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from me.” John 14:6 (The Message Bible)
Today, you will be taking a road trip to the “God Adventureland.” Regardless of where you start your journey, you will travel on many different highways, byways, frontage roads, dirt roads, two-lane highways, multiple-lane freeways, and/or interstates. The roads may be bumpy, curvy, or steep. You may end up at a dead end or need to make a u-turn; your GPS may lead you astray.
Your faith journey takes you on all kinds of paths, endures bumpy roads that rattle your thinking, two-lane highways in which a bad relationship may be heading for a fatal head-on crash. Steep roads may give you the feeling of being out of control; curves cause panic, and dead ends confuse you. U-turns can make you feel as if you are getting nowhere in life and a sense of failure.
Fortunately, God is the newly surfaced Road who promises to stay with you as the Truth and the Life and give you the ride of your life!
Dear Lord, may hazardous roads lead us to a smooth highway to heaven. Amen.
