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,
