Jesus is Our Guide

We arrived for a weekend with my older son at his college. He led us through the car park to the entrance of a hiking trail. ‘Have you ever been on this trail before?’ I asked. ‘No. But we’ll just follow it and see where it leads,’ my son replied confidently. ‘OK,’ I thought as we began, but I wondered where we would find ourselves at the end of the trail.  It was slightly overgrown in places, and all we could rely on was the path in front of us. We followed the path, trusting that it would lead us through. It did! We passed some beautiful scenery and animals along the way, and finally reached the end, happy and safe.

Sometimes our lives can be like following an overgrown path. We may start out eager and confident, certain that we will reach our goals and our dreams. But as we travel, we can become confused about the direction we are going. The only way we can keep going is to keep our eye on the path before us.

Jesus leads us along the trails of our lives and guides us as we        journey. Through scripture and prayer, we can travel through life with confidence. Christ will lead us and guide us and bring us safely to our journey’s end.

Prayer: Dear Jesus, help us to remain focused on your path. Give us courage to follow where you lead. Amen

I am deaf with C.I. - basic BSL, want to learn more. Go to Bridgwater and Weston Super Mare signing church. Have met Gill several times. I think this is a wonderful!! My kind friend Astrid sent me this from Bristol - she has cycled round the world in 2 years - a magical feat! I found life difficult when becoming deaf and decided to make it more `visible` by making BSL jewellery. I have sold some and donate to BSL bible translation, so it is lovely to have this and I will tell my friends about it. JN
