Good morning:

In 1915 the poet Robert Frost wrote, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” Do you ever wonder about the path you’ve taken? Do you picture how things might be if you had gone in a different direction? What if you had been more diligent in your studies and had invested in more years of education? What if you had gone into fulltime work right out of high school? What if you had pursued a different career or moved out of state? What if you had met a different group of friends?

There are endless what-ifs. Look in the rearview mirror, and you might see turns you should have taken and beneficial paths you may have missed. We can’t undo the past and we can’t see into the future. It might seem then that we can’t really be sure of where we are and where we are going.

Praise God that we are not left to wander and stumble through life on our own. Jesus promises, “Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matt. 28:20). We don’t have to worry about all the missteps and misdirection. We don’t have to drag sins of the past along with us. Do what David did. “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD. And you forgave the guilt of my sin” (Ps. 32:5).

Trust the future to the Lord as well. We can’t see what lies ahead. We don’t always know what is best for us, but the Savior does. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart...In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” (Prov. 3:5-6).

As you make plans for today and beyond, ask the Lord to direct your way. Pray that his will be done. Look for guidance in the Word. His way may not always be what you imagined, but you can be sure that it is the best way, the way that will truly make all the difference today and forever.

Yours in Christ,


Tomorrow’s service is at 9 a.m. The Sunday school staff will be installed during the service.

Sunday school and adult Bible class will begin shortly after the service. The Bible class will look at what it means to have a relationship with God and how the Word and fellowship with other Christians are essential for it.

A brief Communion service will be held after Bible class for those who would like to receive the Sacrament.
