Where do you live?
John 8:32-33: And Jesus said to those Jews who believed, if you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed; and you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.
Have you ever gotten lost on your way home? I realize that in today’s technology with Google and GPS, it’s a little more difficult to get lost. And yet, I have found myself lost a time or two as I don’t always remember to rely on technology!
Welcome to Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United. Today’s blog is a great reminder that His Word will take us where we need to go, keep us where we need to stay and prevent us from going in the wrong direction.
No matter the situation, the availability of technology or unavailability, getting lost is a horrible feeling. And yet, I run into so many hurting people who are not lost, per se; however, they are overwhelmed with suffering of some sort. The waves of life have tossed them here and there, and they have lost their way.
Talk to the wife who has just discovered her husband’s having an affair, or is an addict of some sort, and then there’s the parent(s) hurting over the choices their child is making, choices that surely are going to cause so many unfavorable consequences. It’s like being lost in a sea of hopelessness for there is nothing to do but watch the unfortunate consequences come about. Recently I talked with a friend who has been given a life sentence via a medical diagnosis with a prognosis revealing the end is around the corner.
Life and loss are happening all around us; if it’s not happening to us, it’s happening to those close to us. How are we managing? Are we walking around lost, or are we able to stand firm, knowing where we’re going and able to help others?
See, no matter the circumstance, there is a place to abide where we will never get lost, a place that will shed new light, a fresh perspective, a location that is filled with peace, hope, a foundation built with grace, a place that if we would only turn to, land in, abide in, we would find freedom from all that has us overwhelmed: His Love Letters to you and me!
It’s time to stop being one of those who don’t ask for directions and abide in that place that we will be found, never to get lost again! To abide means to dwell. Can I ask, friend, where are you dwelling in mind, body and soul?
Abiding in His promises and principles,
