Direction is paramount

One day, a traveler in a remote country town, convinced that he was on the wrong road, came to a halt in a village. Calling one of the villagers to the car window, he said:

"Friend, I need help. I'm lost." 

The villager looked at him for a moment. "Do you know where you are?" he asked. 

"Yes," said the traveler. "I saw the name of your town as I entered." 

The man nodded his head, "Do you know where you want to be?" 

"Yes," the traveler replied, and named his destination. 

"You're not lost," he said, "you just need directions." 

Many of us are in the same position as that traveler. We know where we are — sometimes disappointed, dissatisfied and experiencing little peace of mind. And we know where we want to be — at peace, fulfilled and living life abundantly. 

Like the traveler, we are not lost — we just need directions. 

It doesn't take much to find the high road to success, but to reach it you need an agenda for the present. You need directions for today. You need a purpose. 

Listen to the advice the president of Lincoln University gave to a group of incoming freshmen: "Our life can't go according to plan if you have no plan!"  ~Zig Ziglar

Let this resonate in your heart this week as you go out there and make your life count. Remember, it's not a crime to ask for direction when the road you are traveling looks blurred. There is an Igbo adage which says, "Onye ajuju anaghi efu uzo", this simply means, "He who asks for direction will never get lost". Ask questions about the journey you want to embark upon and by so doing get clarity for optimum results.  

I leave you with this, " Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. " (Proverbs 3:5,6)
