I Need Directions!

I have been doing some chaplaincy work at a local medical facility that has a large campus with several buildings. During my first couple of weeks I got lost on more than one occasion. Luckily an understanding staff member provided me with a map of the campus. That has helped immensely! Last week as I was walking across the campus a visitor stopped me and asked where the auditorium was located. I didn’t even know we had an auditorium! I remembered my map and took it out of my billfold. After some study and a little head scratching I was able to answer their question. I was so glad I had been given my map! And I was so glad I had it with me.

The situation served to remind me of the directions and instruction available to us in God’s word. I like how David describes the scriptures in Psalm 119 as “a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” God has given us His word so that He can provide us direction in all situations. I pray that in 2019 we will always keep His word with us and turn to it regularly so that the Lord can lead us and guide us.

About pastorpstephens

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
