What Do I Do Now?
I attended a meeting this past week at a church that I’ve not been to in probably 13 years or so.  I had my cell phone with me, which uses GPS to tell me the necessary directions, and I also had a piece of paper with typed directions to get to the church coming from Columbia.  Honestly, I used both sets of directions, and am I ever glad I did!  The GPS gave me two options to go, and I went the way the typed out directions told me to go…at first…until I got to a fork in the road.  At that intersection, the paper said to turn left, but the GPS showed going right.  Because I could visibly see the route on the GPS, I went right instead of left.  After making that decision, the two sets of directions were identical.  I would probably still be driving right now if I had gone left instead!

Sometimes we become unsure of where to go in life, in decisions within our families, in business or work-related decisions, or in moments when our spiritual lives will be impacted.  We can look around at what we see, evaluate how we feel, ask other people what they think, or flip a coin.  Christians have been placed “in Christ” so that we have the foundation we need, the influence we need from His Spirit, the direction we need from His Word, and we have His presence with us at all times.  So no matter how serious the decisions are, or how many people those decisions will impact, or how much time we have to make them, Christ is always there and is always available to lead us through that process.  And because of that wonderful truth, no matter what the future holds, we know that we will forever be “in Christ!”
