The Way Home

Bible Reading: Psalm 19:1-6
Author: Mark A. Carter (Texas, USA)

Here in the rural part of Texas, especially during the summer months when the skies are clear, I can watch the universe put on a show all night long. 

Over the days and months, I notice that every star and planet appears to be slowly but steadily moving in the sky—with one exception. 

No matter what time of night or what time of year, the North Star is always in the same position, providing a guiding light for those who have lost their way in the darkness. 

Even in this age of satnavs, I still find comfort in knowing that the North Star is always there to show me the way home.

Like the night sky, life constantly changes; and if we are not careful, we can easily get lost in the darkness. 

If we don’t have something or someone on whom we can depend, we may never get where we want to go in life. Instead, we wander from one point to the next, always moving but never going anywhere. 

No matter how dark our life becomes, God’s word is the guiding light that keeps us on the right path. We can follow God’s light, and he will lead us home.

Prayer: Dear God, when we are lost and searching, show us the right path to follow and guide us home. Amen

BSL devotions is such a fantastic resource, thank you so much for starting it up and developing the site. I am a Christian hearing person who works with deaf people and have loved the opportunity to develop my understanding of and use of christian signs through the videos. It would be great to know who all the sign interpreters are as well as those who write the devotional content. Perhaps as the website grows in the future, UK deaf and hearing Christians can contribute to the devotion content. Many thanks and blessings. Please keep the site going! HJ
