At a Crossroads
by PamFord Davis

Loving parents teach their children how to safely cross streets. I’m not crossing at an intersection in a big city; I am at a crossroads.

Which direction in life will I take?  Each day brings choices. Will I rush ahead or stop to seek God’s guidance?

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding;
 think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths (Proverbs 3:5-6 HCSB).”

Am I selfishly doing what I want? I know I should be ‘looking to Jesus’ when making decisions.

“Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne (Hebrews 12:1b-2 HCSB).”

Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father; He is not silent. The LORD speaks to me through His Holy Spirit, using the written word and prayer.

Am I listening? Does the LORD have my undivided attention?

He wants to talk to me.

The LORD is teaching me an important life lesson; He wants me to stop, look and listen!

“Make Your ways known to me, Lord; teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; I wait for You all day long (Psalm 25:4-5 HCSB).”
