Life Is a Journey

Memorial Day will arrive soon, and many Americans will observe it at state parks, camping sites, ballparks, and backyard barbecues. Getting to destinations beyond home will cost more this year. Gas costs almost $4 a gallon. If you hit the open road for Memorial Day, you may want to reduce your speed and choose a less distant destination in order to save fuel.

Life itself is a journey. We can choose to make it successful, or we can choose to turn it into a colossal waste of time. The difference depends on whether we pursue the path God has set for us or go our own way. Proverbs 3:6 counsels us to acknowledge God in all our ways, and promises, “he will make your paths straight.” But Proverbs 14:12 warns: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.”

Anchor, Haven Ministries’ devotional guide, is dedicated to helping readers find and follow the path God has prescribed. I wrote Anchor’s June issue, titled “Travel Tips for Life’s Journey.” If you have the opportunity to read the 30 devotionals next month, I hope you will find each one inspiring, encouraging, and beneficial.

May you enjoy a close walk with God today!
