Every Mile Matters
Even before our physical birth, God has a plan for our life. He created each of us with a purpose. Almighty God knows our past, present and future and gives us free will along life’s highway. He knows we are all imperfect and that somewhere along the way we’ll take wrong turns. When we do, instead of staying on the dead-end road, we need to call on Him to get us back to the straight path.
Philippians 3:13-14 -“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Matthew 7:12-17 – “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.” Hebrews 4:16 - “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Matthew 5:12a - “Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: …”
Song Lyrics: “Spread the map on the table, with the coffee stain; put your finger on the places, show me where you've been. Is that California, where your teardrops dried? You drew a circle around Georgia, can you tell me why? I see shoulda beens, coulda beens written all over your face; wrong turns and bridges burned, things you wanna change but … it's history! You can't rewrite it, you're not meant to be trapped inside it. Every tear brought you here, every sorrow gathered. Get the box off the top shelf, with the black and white snapshots of your old self, in a better light. Ghosts and regrets back again … I can see it in your eyes. Send them home, let 'em go! Don't you think it’s time? Every road and every bend, every bruise and bitter end; all you squandered, all you spent … it mattered! Yeah, it's history … but every mile mattered. Mercy always finds a way to wrap your blisters up in grace; and every highway you'd erase, it mattered. But it's history, it doesn't define you! You're free to leave it all behind you. Every tear brought you here, every sorrow gathered. It's history … but every mile on your road trip brought you to Jesus in your own unique way … every mile mattered!”
Friend, Jesus will keep you and guide you if you ask Him … and with Him in the driver’s seat it makes the trip so much smoother!
