Drop A Pin

Taking stock

Are we coming or going?

I recently spent some time in a major US city well known for its freeways and traffic.   Thank goodness for the map programs and apps now on most smart phones,  tablets and computers…..the magic blue dot shows your exact location in the midst of all the chaos….Then you can put in your destination,  get multiple routes,  track the traffic along the way,  and get an approximate time of arrival.

You can Drop a Pin on the map to mark your starting location,  as well as where you hope to end up….

This got me to thinking…..perhaps we need to drop some pins along the way as we navigate life’s journey….and maybe we wouldn’t wander so,  go in circles,  or seem to sink into the mud.

Where are we?
Where do we want to go?
Perhaps we’re living in exile….
Perhaps our good intentions never became a reality…
Perhaps we’re waiting for something,  someone,  we have so much to do before we can get started…..

No matter what our circumstances,  life goes on…..and so must we.

 

This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies,  the God of Israel,  says to all the captives he has exiled to Babylon from Jerusalem:  “Build homes,  and plan to stay.  Plant gardens,  and eat the food they produce.  Marry and have children.   Then find spouses for them so that you may have many grandchildren.  Multiply!  Do not dwindle away!  And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile.  Pray to the LORD for it , for its welfare will determine your welfare.”  Jer. 29:5 NLT

 

Do you know where you are on your spiritual journey?
What have you been putting off?
What are you waiting for?

Things happen,  we drift away,  maybe its time to take stock and Drop a Pin.

There are natural breaks in the journey that give opportunities to start again.

Sometimes it’s a new season or season of life,

 

A new year,  or a birthday that ends in a 0.

Sometimes it’s a life event whether planned or unplanned;
A marriage or divorce,  an illness or death,
A new baby or a new job,  a graduation,  or a move to a new home,
A financial or natural disaster.
And sometimes you just know its time.

All good times to Drop a Pin….

Perhaps today is your day.

God has much to show and teach us no matter where or when we have dropped our pins.   Let Omniallinfinitude help empower your Journey.
