Thought of the Day !!

This is what the LORD says: "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." 
                         Jeremiah 6:16 (NIV)

Crossroads are places where we have to make a decision.  There's an old tale about a legendary blues guitarist named Robert Johnson.  One night at midnight he went out to a particular crossroads in the Mississippi Delta.  It was there that he met the devil and made the decision to give up his soul in order to play the guitar better than anyone else.  

Johnson's legend is about a man who came to a crossroads and made a decision.  This decision was based on a deep desire that came from within to be able to play the guitar and have others want to see him perform.  At his crossroads, it was all about him.  But in the end, his shortsightedness lost him his eternal soul.

When we come to a crossroads in our own lives, what will guide our decision.  We can be tempted to make poor decisions that will affect our lives in tragic ways if we're not careful.  We can also seek the guidance of the one who already knows what's best for us.  

Never make hasty decisions that you might regret later.  Pray for guidance.  Expect God to help you find your way.  You can count on Him to be there.  He may not always lead you to the easiest decision or the one that you like the best, but He'll bring you to the one that's best for you.  

In the love of Christ,
