Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. . . . Wake Up and Live! Bob Marley

They’ve been working on the major highway in my part of town for almost five years now. Although it’s been an amazing engineering feat to watch, there also have been lots of lane closures, rerouting, and detours. One day the exit I usually take was in such a different place, I missed it completely—even though I’ve been using this road for years. I’ve taken wrong turns, wrong exits, and gotten trapped in one of those “you can’t get there from here” loops. I try to follow the signs, but they just aren’t always as clear as I’d like. Yet, if I’m paying attention, they are always there.

Isn’t that just like our lives? It’d be good if life came with flashing neon arrows that said, “Go this way” or “Stop!” because sometimes the signs seem very small and obscure, and far apart. But they are there if we’re paying attention. Sometimes the road tests our faith, and staying the course, especially when we haven’t had a sign in a while, can be an act of sheer courage. That’s when we need to trust our intuition, follow our direction, and rely on the Guidance of Spirit. We’ll know what we need to know, when we need to know it, as we progress down the road of abundance, freedom, and prosperity.

Spiritual Contemplation: Are you still looking for or waiting for a sign? Could there have been one that you didn’t pay attention to?

Affirmation: I pay attention to the signs that Spirit puts along my road. I walk my journey with faith and confidence.
