Memory Lane

          

How many of you walked down memory lane today? You got together with family and friends and reminisced about memories from years ago, some of which you had forgotten until someone reminded you? I did. However, it was a little different.

My kids are here for Thanksgiving. They brought my freshman college yearbook, some notes of appreciation from a church I served over 14 years ago, and my high school graduation program. Several things came to mind. Where are many of these people now? Some of them went on to be successful in the world’s eyes. Some have passed away at a young age. Some of these walked away from God’s will, while others tried to fulfill a calling God Never placed on their lives. Each of us has a story.

My classmates in Christian school and Bible college probably never thought I would get married. I think some of my friends drove 5 hours to the wedding just to see if it was really happening. I’m sure that some never imagined that I would be remarried and be expecting a 5th child biologically.

Maybe you are looking back over your life, wishing you had made a few different turns and decisions. You may fail that there is no hope for you. Your actions have consequences, but your story doesn’t have to have a hopeless ending.

I heard a great illustration about a GPS. You and I make wrong turns in life. God, Like a GPS, knows exactly where we are and can redirect us. If you have made some wrong turns, cry out to Jesus right now and ask Him to put you on the right path for the rest of your life. Then you can walk down memory lane with the sweet assurance that the God of Heaven has forgiven you and has set you on the right path for His greater glory.
