Check with the Author First

DSN9118-2-MThings have been happening that I’m just not quite sure about. And some things don’t happen and I question that as well. Seems like life is just a series of steps from one situation or circumstance to the next. We make our plans, have our dreams, set our goals; then life happens.

I meet a lot of people who have more questions than answers. Of course there are the “why’s?”, and the “what next’s?” But a whole lot more questions. Has it always been this way? It seems life used to be simpler, and maybe with all the technology and immediacy of things life may be more complicated, or at least we’re more aware.

A few years ago there was a ‘V8” commercial that I loved. Decisions, decisions, then a smack on the head, “I could have had a V8!”

I try to reason out my circumstances. I try to figure out why I’m in these situations, I try to understand what’s going on and why. I search, I wonder, I ponder, I ask; then it hits me, I could have had a V8!

The Psalmist says it this way in 119:169, “Let my cry come before you, O Lord; give me understanding according to your word.”

For answers to life I need go to the author. His Word is the original thinking, not outside the box, but way beyond it. With creative and real solutions to all the illusions that would otherwise distract me or bury me in my own foolish thinking or wisdom of this world.

May the author of my life come to be always the first source and destination of my search.
