It was strange having to watch for road signs more carefully because I didn’t have a voice to guide me. The result was that I had to concentrate on and think about where I was going much more than usual.
This got me thinking about how easy it is to drift through life on a kind of autopilot rather than paying attention to what is going on around us.
You see, we exist in each moment but that doesn’t mean that we are really living in each of those moments.
Will you just exist today or will you live life well?
Part of the beauty of living as a follower of Jesus is that he does want us to find fulfillment in life and he also wants to guide us forwards.
Ironically, the journey following Jesus begins with his invitation to ‘turn around when possible’. This involves turning towards his ways which means turning from ways of life that are contrary to Jesus’ way.
If we choose to live well today, I hope that we will also choose to turn to Jesus when possible. He is with us and he wants to guide us into fullness of life.
