Trip Tik

On the summer of 2004, my family and I went to British Columbia for a vacation. It was our first time to travel by car as a family with no other companions with us. This arrangement made my husband uncomfortable as he was used to following a friend’s car on a long trip. To lighten his burden, we made sure our trip would be under control as we prepared excitedly for the adventure.

When I meant under control, I meant having a trip tik. Trip tik gave information on the direction, location, gas station, Alberta Motor Association (AMA) offices, hotels, weather and road updates. However, its usefulness depends on the person who requested for it. If I have detailed information of the places I will visit, the trip tik will provide thorough information on how to get there. Sadly, if I only ask for the general direction, the trip tik will only provide that.

Unfortunately, I only asked for the general direction from Edmonton to Vancouver and AMA obliged. So when my family and I were traveling, we were on our own to get the direction to our hotels, parks, museums, gardens, and other scenic places we planned to go. Preparing the trip tik on our own was tiring and cumbersome. Although by God’s grace we were able to visit those places, the process of getting there was annoying because my husband bickered and complained about the limitations of the trip tik. And since we don't know the exact location, the kids kept on asking, "Are we there yet?" It should have been avoided had I prepared for this scenario.

What I have learned from this whole exercise was that thorough preparation is essential in having a pleasant trip – whether a short vacation to a nearby town or a lifetime journey. If we walk through life without or with little plans, we wouldn’t know if we have arrived. We could have avoided frustrations and unexpected problems. Similarly, if we do not plan for our eternal life with God, we wouldn’t have a slightest idea how to be with Him.

The Word of God, the Bible, is our trip tik in life. It gives us direction and wisdom as we tread our life on earth. His words inform, teach, train, encourage, comfort and sooth our souls. May we always find time to commune with Him. His words serve as a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
