Several times a day, shuffling the kids to school and activities, I am faced with an intersection that has three different paths I can take, all leading to different areas of town. Because it changes based on my destination, almost every time I get to this place, I have to remind myself which way I need to go. I have to think, “Where am I going?” “Which way do I go right now?” I can leave my house, knowing where I am going, but once faced with this intersection, I have to remind myself the direction I am going so I don’t take a wrong turn.
Whether you turn to the right of the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21
As Christians, when we choose to follow the Lord, it’s a once and for all decision but also everyday decision to go HIS way and not our own. Thankfully, we have His Spirit to help us, telling us the way in which we should go.
So today we can ask ourselves, Where am I going? Am I going with the Lord today? In that specific situation where we may be at a loss as to what to do or how to proceed in love, ask the Lord which way you should go…HE will point us in the direction of HIM, He will tell us, “This is the way, walk in it.”
God’s way is never wrong. God’s way is not always easy. God’s way is normally against the flow of the world and even our own desires. God’s way is always love, forgiveness and grace. God’s way is best found in the pages of His Word.
Heavenly father, so many directions we can go in one day. May we not only take you with us, but may we let You guide us. You, the only One that can set our feet on solid ground. You, the only One who can help us take the direction of love, grace and forgiveness when we get to the messy intersections of life. You long to see Your children walking in the freedom that comes with a deep relationship with You- thank You for pursuing us with your never-stopping love and grace. Thank You for Your faithful patience. I praise you for granting us your continual presence, Your help, and Your voice when we seek You. I pray we all know You through Your Word and choose walk with you today. In Jesus name, AMEN.
I love it! What a great post and quite an intersection! Sometimes it feels life is like that for sure! Thank you! Blessings to you and yours!
Thank you for the encouraging words! Blessings to you, too!
You are so right >> “God’s way is never wrong. God’s way is not always easy. ” I am just so thankful His way is always right! Blessings!
Yes!! Blessings to you, too!
Great minds, Sarah. I went in the same direction even the same scripture!!!
Oh I love that!!! So neat!! 🥰
I like that verse in Isaiah…I considered using it today as well:) So many paths/turns/intersections and choices – you are right! Much smarter to stop and consider each time we come to a crossroad. I often turn “just on autopilot” and, if on your route, I would end up back at home when I totally intended to go somewhere else!
Yes! Autopilot! So easy to go into that mode. Grateful the Lord guides us!

Never knew that! Cool, thanks!
Great message, sweet Daughter! Too often we forget he is there, with us in every decision, choice. I pause, even as I type this, facing a financial decision, remembering whose it all is. Thanks for the reminder! Dad
Yes! Every decision and choice. We aren’t alone. Love you!
Great post! It’s so important to keep remembering which direction we are going in. Visiting from FMF #20.

I was thinking of that passage too but didn’t write on it. “Thankfully, we have His Spirit to help us, telling us the way in which we should go.” So thankful!
