8: Compass (plus Merry Christmas!)

A compass makes me think of a journey.

Joseph and Mary were directed to Egypt, so they would avoid Herod’s murderous campaign. It was no doubt, an arduous journey. It was an uncharted terrain in their lives – giving birth to their first son and escaping from the sword of the most powerful person in their jurisdiction. But it was worth it because they carried Jesus, who grew to become the Savior of the whole world.

Even in His adult life, Jesus had a sense of purpose and was directed by God in all He did. He’s finished the course and has passed the life-baton to you.

“What do you want to do with your life?” “Who are your friends?” “ Is this business a good deal?” “What do you want to study?” “Who do you want to marry?” Trust me, you need direction.

Your life is a journey through uncharted terrain. You have a purpose, but you do not have a map so you do not know every little detail about your life’s journey. If you did, you wouldn’t need faith.

But you have a compass from the One who says “I will lead you and show you the way to go.”

You can set your sights on the glory and purpose of your creation and He can make your journey through the triumphs and challenges of life worth it. He can direct your path.

All you need to do is trust Him. You don’t have to go alone.

On a major note,

Merry Christmas!
