I am prone to wander. It is in my nature. I take rabbit trails. I lazily look for short cuts. I get distracted by beauty. I get caught up in the moment and toss off pressing responsibilities. I have a horrible sense of direction because I am too busy having fun riding along. God knows this about me. He made me sensitive to my surroundings. He made me an artist so that I could witness His beauty and write about it.
He also blessed me with the gift of discernment. Praise Jesus. Otherwise, I may never reach my destination. Yes, I am prone to wander, but I am not lost. Neither are you. If you find yourself off your path. Stop. Find your direction with the calling of His name. He will turn you around and set you on your way. Traveling in His direction. Toward His goals. For His glory.
Do. Not. Give. Up.
Everyone looses their way sometimes. Come back to Jesus. He is your starting point and finish line. If I had given up every time I had wandered off, I would not be here at the Masters feet before you. Praise God.
You can do it, my friend.
He is full of mercy.
“Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent,”( Luke 15: 3-7).
