Hello Dear One,
There’s an old story about a pilot who came over the intercom and said, “Good news ladies and gentlemen: We’ve got a very strong tailwind and are making excellent time. The bad news is that our navigation equipment has gone down, so we have no idea where we are.”
Some people move through life pursuing their purpose. There is no doubt which way they are headed. Others are on the road to destruction. They become obsessed with work, electronics, or sports. Others pursue money and/or fame. Some are addicted to their favorite sitcom to the exclusion of all else. Drugs and alcohol and all of the above can be numbing behaviors. Sometimes we are so sure we are headed in the right direction only to discover that we are on the fast track to nowhere. How far do we have to travel before we stop and ask for direction?
Here is the great news! Romans 12:2 states that “we are to be transformed by the renewal of the mind.” You have two choices. You can adhere to what the culture determines valuable or be transformed by God and embrace the value He planted in you to begin with. You were created with a plan and a purpose. Stop for a moment and ask yourself, “Am I pursuing what the culture values or am I pursuing God? What is my final destination? Am I on the right path? Or lost? Prayer will connect you to the navigation tower. Will you stop and ask for direction?
