The Way Ahead

1225 038

As we begin a new year our life’s road stretches out before us.  Look ahead; what do you see?

Like the picture you might see cold snow and ice for a piece, and then the thaw of spring out ahead…

Maybe you are going through hard times right now; many people are.  Maybe things are going well… even many of these are worried about the future in such uncertain times.  There are nasty economic rumblings out there; in some places there are people in the streets crying out for change.  In some parts of this world there is unrest; unease everywhere.

Are you walking down your life’s road all alone?

Maybe you are going along with your family and your spouse as a strong unit; if so that’s a very good thing. If you falter, maybe they can carry you a ways…

What if you all falter… then what?

Just to be on the safe side, I like to take Jesus along on my life’s road: He can handle things that I can’t quite seem to manage on my own.  He can help me when I stumble, He can carry me if necessary; in fact He can carry the whole family if we need it. We are never alone out in the wilderness to freeze, or in the desert to die of thirst, for He fills out needs.  We are never overpowered by strangers, for He is with us.

Yes, taking Jesus along life’s road is a good idea, don’t you think?

Look!  Just a little farther and the sun is shining!

    Good to take Jesus with us on life’s journey, but I couldn’t help but think about it another way — Jesus asking us to ride with him. He asks us to step out of the boat. He asks us to follow him. Yet he did ask Zacheus to take him to his home. Either way, we should have Christ by our side. Thanks for this thought-provoking post.

    Taking Jesus along is always the nest idea

  5. I see an interesting year ahead.

    Two years ago (2018) I retired, the first year I spent handling health issues.

    Last year (2019) was my wife’s turn, she also battled health issues.

    What will this year (2020) bring? Good health for both? My turn again? How do you juggle the insurance choice – pay more assuming you’re going to get hit, or pay less hoping you will be better? When the ACA was created we were promised “affordable, quality healthcare just like Congress enjoys.” That never came about. Now the call is for “Medicare for all” by people who have never/will never be covered by the failing healthcare system.
