We travel on the highway, our destination, the family reunion.
The question asked, “Are we there yet”? “No son, were not there yet”. Again the question is asked; it seems like just ten minutes later, “Are we there yet”? We come to a stop, not sure which way to go. My husband passes me the map, and as I begin to read the directions he ask, “Which road do I take, which is the easier route?”
In my mind I begin to ponder on this question, “Which road do we take”, as this question is asked, I start to think on this walk with Christ. There are choices, paths and roads we take. We are given a road map, The Bible. As we read it, we are given directions as to which is the best road to take, what’s the easiest route. We see that in this walk with Christ, there is no easy route. As we travel, our desire is to walk, talk, and look like Christ. Our destination is to be with him eternally. We know that just as Christ endured, so must we. As we follow the directions given to us in the Bible we see that there are choices. There are times in this walk we come to a fork in the road. One way is life, the other death; a separation from our Heavenly Father. I continue to ponder on this and I ask myself, “Which road will I take” and then I ask, “Am I there yet”? I also realize that in this walk I will make mistakes, and that my Heavenly Father is always there to redirect my path. I then tell myself, “I may not be there yet, but I am on my way”.
As I read the road map and we follow the road that will lead us to our destination the question from my seven year old again is, “mommy, are we there yet”? I look back at him, I smile and I say “almost honey, almost”.
