Going Somewhere?

Given March 10, 2005

On this day, I was looking out my kitchen window and saw this dog walking up the road. I had seen it before...walking up the road. On occasion, I had seen this old dog about a half mile up the road. It made me wonder, "Does this dog know where it's going or is it just wandering?" Did it think to itself, "Today I'll walk up to Fido's place and gnaw on a bone for awhile."

And, what about birds? When you see them flying by, are they going somewhere specific or just flying? Sometimes I think about crazy things. And sometimes these things have a meaning.

This one makes me think about us. Are we consciously going somewhere? Do we have a plan as we walk the road of life? Or are we just wandering aimlessly along, changing directions according to what we encounter along the way? If we are a follower of Jesus, shouldn't we be going somewhere? "And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21". God is saying to us, "This is the way I want you to go, walk this way and I'll tell you when to turn."

It may seem silly to think we're wandering aimlessly like that dog but...maybe we are. If we're not in tune with the will of God for our lives through studying the Word, praying, and yielding to the Holy Spirit, then we might be wandering. We might be on the right path sometime but off it many other times. "That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; Ephesians 4:14."

Think about it when you see a dog walking or a bird flying.
