Memory Lane Now Closed

BREAKING NEWS! – Due to a flood of unforeseen circumstances last night, memory lane is now completely washed out and all travelers are directed to the Way the Truth and the Life

Jesus said to Him, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6 ESV

Show Me The Way

Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. Psalm 25:405 NKJV

Often when David got in trouble, he went to the wilderness of Judea to hide. This Psalm is really his prayer and it had a lot of practical as well as spiritual meaning. In the desert finding the right way could mean the difference between life and death.  P1040698That reminds me of one day when I was twelve. My friend and I decided to spend that Saturday afternoon exploring the woods behind his house. We loved the mystery of discovering whatever lay just over the next hill and watching squirrels playing high above us in the sugar maples.

 

Eventually we came out to the shore of a lake where we lingered for a while skipping stones over the water.

P1040691 It was a great day until we tried finding our way home. Without fence lines, streams or other landmarks to follow we plodded aimlessly through dense underbrush without success. After an hour finally, we burst through some buses and found ourselves on the road about a mile from Steve’s house.

P1040702  When life feels like wandering through a forest God knows the way. When we ask; “Show me your ways.” He answers; “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father but by me!” John 14:6

 

The Way Up

The Way Up

John 14:5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life…

 

Some years back I was carefully following directions to a short cut. My wife was reading the steps that our friends had given us and so the main road became a side road. The side road became a dirt road and finally the dirt road ended in a pair of tractor ruts that went up a hill looking a lot like this. That may have been the feeling that Thomas had. He was really trying his best to follow the directions but it all seemed a puzzle to him. When we face life’s puzzles, Stop-Look & Listen: Jesus is still the Way!
