A Master Map

Road to Durango, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.

“Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.” Psalm 73:24

Some years back I first heard the term, Cruise to Nowhere, and since I’m fond of cruising, the thought intrigued me. Although I haven’t been able to indulge just yet, perhaps someday I will board a ship and “cruise to nowhere.”

Typically though, when planning a trip, we get out the maps, peruse an atlas, or consult with a travel agent. Yesterday, we left Lake Havasu– our plans were to arrive in Flagstaff in the evening, and finish the distance today. The Flagstaff portion is finished, and we’ll arrive in Durango this afternoon. This certainly is not a “cruise to nowhere,” and though we have been to Durango several times, Jerry scrutinized maps, even going to Mapquest for assistance in finding the KOA here in Flagstaff. At the moment, he sits with a cup of coffee at his side, and is holding a map in his hand as he reassures himself of the correct routing to our destination.

The most important journey any of us will ever make is that of finding our way to Heaven. That’s one trip whose destination I want to assure–don’t want any mistakes, no detours, no missed markers–nothing like that. Positively, this is not a “cruise to nowhere,” and in an excellent way God has laid out a splendid road map. It’s a beautifully written document, impeccably researched, with guaranteed accuracy.

I’m on my way! Hope you are too.
