Road Trip?

4 01 2014

This is the journey ahead of me.  I know where my finish line is but I have no idea how to get there.  I have my GPS to guide me along the way and I have check points, because this journey is too long to get down in one day.  Road blocks might come and detours might need to be taken, and tolls to be paid.  Oh I’m sorry, did you think I was talking about the trip I am making to Florida?  I am taken, but I am talking about the trip that is being a follower of Christ.  My journey will take my whole life.  The finish line is Heaven and the GPS is Christ.  Check points exist because I get called all over the place.  Road blocks because the Devil is on the prowl and detours for when I fall.  Tolls because there is a cost of following The Almighty.   That cost of leaving those we love and leaving our wills at the starting line.
