Have you ever gone to the directory at a mall or shopping center? Often there is that star that says, “You Are Here”. While we can see on the map where we have been, the star reminds us where we are and helps us figure out how to get where we are trying to go.
So often we can get stuck dwelling on the events of our past. This can leave us feeling lost, lonely, and hopeless. We can start to believe that the mistakes we’ve made or the difficulties we’ve faced are part of our identity. It’s during these times that we need to find our star on the directory, Jesus. Jesus, reminds us that yes we may have been there and made this mistake or suffered this trial but, right now in this moment, you are here and I am here to help you get where you are going.
When we allow Jesus to guide our steps He will point us down the path of righteousness and truth. ” The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.” Psalm 37:23-24
