Life’s Journey

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Hebrews 11:8-10

Life is a journey with different levels of maturity, choices, direction, and destinations.

Where are you going? Are you being guided, or are you in control of your own fate? Jesus talking about the rulers of the day, the Pharisees described in Matthew 15:14 as: “…blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” Are you on a clear path?

The journey of life has many obstacles, bumps, turns, ups and downs. Do you know where your going? Proverbs 4:26 tells us to: “Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.” There are a multitude of decisions to be made; are you on the right path? God has promised to show us the way. In Psalm 16:11 we read: “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

God has a wonderful journey in store for you. Seek His way; trust in Him, and He has promised to direct you! “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5 & 6)

Veterans_Day-PeaceVeterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11. The holiday was first known as “Armistice Day,” to honor veterans of World War I. But, after World War II the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans’ service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word, “Armistice,” and inserting in its place the word, “Veterans.” This is a holiday honoring all veterans that have served in our country’s armed forces to uphold peace in our land, and throughout the world.

 God’s Peace

 As servants in God’s army, we are called to be ambassadors of His peace. Jesus said in John 14:27: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Romans 5:1 describes the peace we have in Christ:

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The prayer, “Lord Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace,” is attributed to the13th-century friar, Francis of Assisi. Let us pray:

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Amen.
