A friend and I left the house with great anticipation for a great bicycle ride. Midway on our journey we encountered roadblocks and detours that took us off course and caused us to get lost. It was late afternoon when we stopped in a small town asking for directions that would get us back home. We asked several people who didn’t know the way, nor did the seem to care for us to find our way home. Finally, one young man came up to us and said, “I’ll show you the way. Just follow me.”

Now this young man had a pickup truck. He could have put our bicycles in the bed of his truck and taken us home, or He could have given us the directions, but no, He told us to follow him. So we did.

After a short wile, reaching a landmark we recognized, we gave the driver a thumbs up, letting him know we could get home from there on our own. The driver turned back, and we continued making our way towards home, but then, something happened. It got dark and we didn’t make it home.

This story did not happen in real life, it happened in my dream. Perhaps the dream was given for me to get and share this thought: There is a heavenly home awaiting every person, but to get there, we must follow Jesus. We must follow Him all the way.

“I will lead the blind by ways the have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”
​Isaiah 42:16
