Dead End ~ June 8

Dead End

Maybe we’re on the wrong road!

You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalm 16:11

It sometimes seems to me the verses I read and write about all say the same thing, only different. But, they’re all written by God, and He used many men to actually place the words on paper, so it stands to reason the message would be similar, just told in different ways.

The Bible sometimes seems repetitive, and I think it’s because God is keeping it simple, telling the same message in many ways, so we will be able to find understanding in at least some of the many stories and lessons, as He makes the paths of life known to us.

When we travel God’s paths, we find the going to be much smoother than when we attempt to blaze our own trail. Forging ahead on our own, we often encounter road blocks and dead ends, sharp curves and steep grades, and many other bumps and potholes. Those things cause our life to be less joyful than it can be if we follow God’s path.

His path leads to eternal life with Him, and if we choose to follow it and make forever with Him our destination, our lives here on earth will be joyful. And when our time here is done, we will be filled with joy and eternal pleasures at His right hand.
