Can you tell if the camera is pointing up or down the hill? Life is like that at times. We wonder which way we are going because we are floundering in our ways. The demands of life seem to be pulling us in the direction that the day’s requirements are exacting on us. At times, we feel that we have no control over what is happening in our life. One minute we seem to have it all together and in the next we are falling apart. So where does this middle of the road lie in our lives? Where the hill is neither too steep to climb nor too easy and we find we are heading down hill and lost?
Jesus said that he is the way, the truth and the life. When we are lost and afraid by life’s circumstances, we have a guide who will help us find our way, Jesus. The funny adage of men not asking for directions and not looking at the map just before getting completely lost has its merit. We want to be right and feel confident about our decisions, but at times we have to admit that we are lost and need help.
Are you lost today? Do you need help? Take time to ask our father for help in finding your way. He is never too far from us and is always willing to listen and help. A lifeguard once said that to help a drowning victim, he sometimes has to let the person struggle first, so he himself does not get pulled down by the panicked swimmer and both are drowned. Jesus is just waiting for us to stop struggling on our own strength so he can help us. Ask Jesus now for help, he is waiting patiently for you.
