Never Too Far

"Recalculating..." my navigator's voice said after I took a different turn, this was then followed by a polite "Please make a legal u-turn if possible." Following the prompt, I was back on the right path towards my destination.

These days, it's so much easier to navigate our way around unfamiliar places with the help of smart phones and built-in navigation systems in cars. We only need to enter the address of our destination and we're given turn by turn directions. We know how close we are to our next turn so we can slow down, it gives us the time of arrival and it even recalculates this if we get stuck in traffic or choose to take a different route.

Navigating our way through life is not easy with its ups and downs and unexpected detours. However, just as our phones and cars have built-in navigators that recalculate our routes in order to get us on the right path, so are we also fully equipped to navigate through life's uncertainties. The Lord knows us intimately. As His children, He had already prepared the way for us. He knows exactly what we need, when we need it.

We may lose our way from time to time but we are never too far away to get back on track. If we can talk ourselves into trouble, we can certainly talk ourselves out of it. Instead of thinking you're already in too deep to straighten your way, challenge yourself to become better. Figuratively speaking, a dead end should not deter us from carving our own path. There will always be a way through, over and around it. As they say, if there is a will, there is a way.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” -- Joshua 1:9
