Direction & Time. These are two forces of creation that can not be seen or felt but definitely came into existence when the earth took shape. Direction can be measured by the stars and the polar caps. Time can be measured by the movement of the planets and changing of seasons. Are we not glad that God made gravity, space, and time along with the trees, animals, and sky? I have always had a clock and a map in my head. They help me stay on task and make the best use of my day. A map can keep me from wasting time—if I will follow it. I pray each morning that the Lord will guide each step I take. Two of my most treasured items are my father’s compass that he carried in World War II and his wrist watch. Just as my earthly father’s instruments direct me, my heavenly Father will illuminate my days.
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining even brighter till the full light of day. Proverbs 4:18
