The Crossroad

When we drive, sometimes we come to crossroads leading into various directions. It wouldn't be an issue if we are conversant with where we are headed. But supposing the destination we're headed is unfamiliar to us, we may be stuck trying to figure out where to go.

We will definitely reach crossroads in our lives. We will be required to make decisions decisions which will determine our destiny. Have you ever reached a crossroad in your life and don't know what to do? Are you in the threshold of making a decision right now?

If you make the wrong turn, you will arrive at the wrong destination. What may eventually be the outcome of that decision is best left to the imagination.

On the other hand, making the right decision amidst the myriad of options open to us allow us make good decisions that help us reach our goal without much hitch.

Jesus, in the garden of Gethsemane, was at a crossroad. It was a difficult one. One road leads to a gory cross. The other is an escape route. There was an inner struggle within Jesus to choose the easier path. It is OK to have inner struggles when confronted with a difficult task.

The key is to remain focused on the final goal. For Jesus it was written, 'When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied'(Isaiah 53:11,NLT). But for that to happen, the cross must be faced.

I am so glad that Jesus chose the right path. Im here today because He did.

What decisions are you making today socially, spiritually, financially, educationally, maritally that would impact those around you?

Understand that there are certain decisions that you will make either casually or with all seriousness that are personal but the consequence will reverberate and touch others.

How will it impact them? How will it show you truly belong to Christ?

If we know these things, how careful we ought to be when caught in web of making a decision.

At the crossroad of life, personal decisions can ripple to such an extent beyond our imagination. Remember, when you make the right turn at the crossroad, not only are you fulfilling your vision, you're touching other people's lives in ways only you could.

God bless your decision making process with heavenly insights that will be a blessing to you and add value to others.

Blessings!
