You know, sometimes people think that if you decide to follow Jesus it means that life will always be easy, that it's some kind of "guarantee" that you'll never face hardships or hurdles along your journey. That just isn't the case. We all have bumps and detours along our life's path. What we do have is God's promise to guide us in the right direction, give us strength to stay on the right path, and His help when the road is rough. In Isaiah 41:10 it says..."So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed , for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Then there are those occasions when we veer "off the beaten path" and choose our own route instead, thinking our plan is so much better than the Lord's plan. That always leads to disaster, doesn't it? As soon as we are ready, our heavenly GPS lovingly guides us back in the right direction. That road always leads to peace and to JOY! How great is that? :o)
