Spiritual Crossroads

In life we face many crossroads....

To take a job
get married
have children
buy a house
lose weight
just to name a few.

We have to make decisions...which direction do I go?
We have a GPS...we have a Map...Google Map....all the right equipment.
But do we put it to use & let it guide us?
Sometimes the road is smooth & easy & then you reach the destination & realize you
went the wrong direction. You didn't pay attention to the directions...you were distracted by the
things around you to even noticed you were going the wrong way!

And other times the road is bumpy...rough...but you reach the destination & realize
you went the right direction...it was just harder to get there.

In life there are bumps...hazards...flat tires...but there is JOY in the bumps!
But are you on the right Highway?
Are you Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb?

In BSF today we talked about Spiritual Crossroads...
2 paths...that's it.
One that leads toward God...another that leads away from God.
NO other choice.
Only God's word can give you the correct directions...

Isaiah 35: 8-10 tell us about a highway called the "Way of Holiness"
Will you be on that highway?? This is how it describes the Highway...

And a highway will be there,
it will be called the Way of Holiness.
The unclean will NOT journey on it;
it will be for those who walk in the Way,
wicked fools will not go about on it.
No lion will be there, 
nor will any ferocious beast get up on it,
they will not be found there.
But only the REDEEMED will walk there,
and the ransomed of the LORD will return.
They will enter Zion with singing,
everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness And joy will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away.

Doesn't that sound amazing?
Seeking the path He sets before me daily...


  1. Good reminder. Gladness and joy will overtake them (us) ... that is our great hope for the final redemption at the end. One we hold on to! Good post.

  2. This is a good reminder...especially with so many newlywed decisions :) I have a hard time remembering to ride the bumps with joy!
