To a secure future?
To more schooner sails?
To a nice job?
To a shiny house?
Where am I going?
For the believer, the path of life leads to... God!
Not only that, but God is the Shepherd who leads the flock. He looks-out and clears the path ahead. He is also the rear-guard who protects and shields. Isaiah 52:12 says, "...the LORD will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard."
Home is not where the hat is. Home is where God is :) I can't wait till He looks me in the eyes and tells me, "Welcome home, Megan!!!"
Oh, gracious, gracious, Lord - who forgets my sin, shortcomings, and failures. In place of them, He gives me a robe of righteousness to wear - His own righteousness! Hold me up in the midst of these uncertain days, Lord Jesus, and renew a right spirit within me. Lead on, Lord!
Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?”
But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life."
Where else could I set my aim? The finish line is God's doorstep :)
