Which Way Do I Go?

Sometimes life is like this maze, Confusing. We are not sure which way to go. Many times people use the trial and error method, which usually involves more error than trial. We seem like we are covering the same ground over and over again. It is frustrating. I remember in the famous story of Alice in Wonderland there was a time when Alice was lost. Alice asks the Cheshire Cat for directions. "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat. "I don't much care where-" said Alice. Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat. I think this dialogue describes many peoples lives today. They really do not know where they are going, and so it really does not matter which way they go. They are like the Children of Israel, just wandering aimlessly in the Wilderness until they die. Life does not have to be like that. We are created with a purpose, Jeremiah 29:11. We should consult with the giver of life and the architect of that purpose.....GOD. There is no magic formula, no secret chant, you do not have to be able to read Greek and Hebrew, you just need to ask for directions. Ask and you shall receive, Seek and you shall find, Knock and the Door will be opened. What are you waiting for? I hope it's not a Cheshire Cat.

  1. Which way do I go? What if I do this or that? Is God telling me to go here or there? Is this a good idea or not? All good questions. Prayer should give me the answer. Sometimes I still, make the wrong choice.
