Eventually frustration sets in and if you find yourself in a dangerous neighborhood or on a lonely rural stretch, things can get much worse. If it is in a big city, all the streets look the same and you wonder if you will ever get out. In the country, you backtrack and lose track of the path you followed to get you to the point where you finally realized you are lost. In both cases, there are no directional signs pointing toward where you are trying to go.
This has happened to most of us at some time or another and if we learned from the experience, we would never repeat it. We would always put a good road map or a better directional finder in the car before starting on our way.
So what is a good roadmap? Well, it's one that is current and accurate, one that you can trust. You can count on it getting you to your destination if only you carefully follow the map. Follow it and you get where you want to go reliably. Don't follow it and you end up in the same sad situation as before.
The roadmap of the Highway to Eternity is much the same. It will guide you as you traverse your life and when you reach maturity where the choices are great it will help you go in the right direction. After all it was created by the master mapmaker, God in heaven above. The roadmap He provides is the Holy Bible and we learn from it with some its assisting guides, known as prayer and the communion with other believers. Put them all together and the roadmap will safely lead you to the Eternity at the end of the most important Highway of Earthly Life. It adds the most important element to life, an element which will let you live forever if only you believe and follow it.
Think about it. Life is filled with all kinds of possibilities as well as all kinds of difficulties. And God has given us free will to make those decisions that we face, and they can be quite complex trying to find our way through detours, closed lanes and heavy traffic and frequent accidents. But if we refer to God's roadmap for the Highway to Eternity, the Holy Bible, it will guide us in our decision making and help us find our way. The trip will become more standard, although still with potholes along the way, but at it's end we will find the ultimate destination to be divine as we will be welcomed to the Kingdom of God, our Eternal Home.
Want to try it? Well, it's readily available. Pick up a Bible and read it, open a conversation with Him through prayer and join others in the community of believers in the Lord to celebrate the wonderful roadmap that can be ours through Him. And one thing will be sure, you'll never get hopelessly lost on the Highway of EarthlyLife, you'll now find yourself in the fast lane of the Highway to Eternity.
