In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:6

How would you like to know about a path in life that could take you anywhere you want to go? “Is there such a road?” You might ask. There sure is, and it isn’t that far from where you’re standing right now.

This story tells how one man found that road. A man was hiking through a small, relatively unknown village in the mountains of Europe, and he came across an elderly man sitting on his front porch. “Excuse m, sir! Can you tell me what this village is known for?” The visitor inquired o the old man. The old man pondered for a moment, then replied, {I don’t rightly know, other than it’s the starting point to the whole world. You can start here and go anywhere you want.”

That is sound advice. The same is true for you. If you are not where you want to be today in your career, finances, relationships, walk with God, or any area, then you can start where you are today and get to anywhere you want to be. You are standing on that path to anywhere you want to go. Do you want to be a doctor, lawyer, pilot, or maybe a minister? All you have to do is make the decisions that twill take you down that path. You can start now, right where you are today.

Commitment prayer

Lord, help me to take the steps today that will lead me to where I need to be tomorrow. Show me if I am on a path that I need to change. I don’t want to procrastinate with indecision or inaction. Help me to be a person of purpose. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
