My husband always placed any map with the north point facing upwards to get his directional bearings.
In weather the north wind blows cold from the Arctic in the Northern Hemisphere.
A rhyme says "when the north wind doth blow
we shall have snow."
In the Southern Hemisphere the north wind is hot from the tropics.
A northeaster is a cool wind from the sea.
When the northeaster wind blew up the sand and waves on the main beach of our holiday site, we trudged though the bush to a sheltered cove facing south to spend the day.
Northward bound is leading north, weather by sea or land; i.e North Pole, North Sea, Northern Australia.
In the spiritual sphere true north means pointing towards God and travelling his way.
There is a broad way that leads to destruction.
Narrow is the way that leads to life.
So we should point our life compass towards God and read his word for direction each day.
It is easy to get blown off course and miss times of prayer and bible reading. Life gets busy
and distracts us off course. We have to get back to a life pointing true north to God.
Let us embark on the ship of life
northwards towards the sun,
leading to God and eternity
till our life's goal is won.
God will be with us
pointing the way
The bible shows true north
for ever and a day.
