    Today I am a simple traveler on God’s narrow path.

    Journeys are exciting. They allow for an opportunity to visit new places and to meet new people. Journeys are smoother if they are planned and met with preparation. Most travelers choose the most direct travel route. This affords them a quicker travel time so that they can spend more time at their final destination. The most direct route doesn’t always provide for the most scenic trip or the most adventurous one. It is, though, the one most commonly selected by journey travelers. Direct routes allow for a path of least resistance. You can go with the flow and be one of the crowd sure to arrive quickly along with all the others.

    If you are more interested in the quality of the journey than the speediness of it, you may want to consider an alternate route. Sometimes the road most traveled is the road least desired. You may prefer a more scenic route or a route with less traffic instead. It may take longer to get where you are going but you will arrive with a different perspective. The road less traveled provides you with more time to think and reflect, to change your course if you choose, and to take in the view. You can hear God more clearly on this road because He isn’t blocked out by the fast pace of the journey or the noise from all the other travelers. When you arrive at your destination with God, you are sure to find a grand welcome from those who have journeyed this route before you. So take your time, plan your journey wisely, pack along lots of patience, love, compassion and faith. For all your other needs ask your guide Jesus Christ and He will show you the way.

    You may have thought the super highway of life was the best route to take. Now you know that the best journey is traveled with God as your guide. - Gail Lindsay
