Safe Travels

on August 14, 2016




Jeremiah 17:7- “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.”


My husband likes to watch old cowboy movies. Often, there are episodes involving a wagon train crossing the country. With no way to know the conditions “up ahead” a scout is often sent out in front. His job is to look for impeding dangers, including the possibility of an ambush, and report back to the head trail master.

Many a movie plot hangs on the very outcome of such information—and the action taken by the brave men in the wagon party.

Wouldn’t it be nice if, in our everyday lives, someone would walk the road ahead of us and let us know of coming dangers? Someone we have complete confidence in? A person we trust to steer us clear of possible complications?

Wouldn’t it make life easier? Diminish our worries? Give us a certain degree of relief?

Wouldn’t we be more confident of our future if we knew for sure what tomorrow would bring?

Choosing the right person for the job would be key.

When we put our trust in God, we know the blessing that we are in the right place at the right time. That doesn’t mean we will be free from the dangers of this life, but it does mean that we are on the path that He has preplanned for us to travel…

The one that is filled with God’s greatest blessing for us.

The one in which He has chosen to reveal himself to us…

The one in which we can be of the most help to others…

Where we will learn the lessons He has for us as we travel homeward.

  1. Great message, Brenda! Love the photo of the wagon train, and the reminder that we do have a “scout” ahead of us–God! Such a comforting thought!
