If you need a guide

When our family visits this coastal area, we often enjoy seeing kayakers navigating the vast marshes. In fact, a few of us have braved the marshes ourselves with mixed results, but that's a story for another day.

Expert kayakers warn never to enter the marshes without a guide. At high tide, navigation is easy, but when the tide goes out, and water levels lower, expansive vistas give way to tall sea grass and twisting channels. With limited visibility, this leaves unexperienced kayakers confused, because landmarks have disappeared.

That’s when a guide who is familiar with the area is essential to navigating safely through the marsh.

At one time or another, we may have thought we could handle our lives without our guide, the Holy Spirit. However, when circumstances shift, life can seem like that marsh at low tidea maze.

Been there. Done that.

Jesus knew we would need help, and he sent the Holy Spirit to give us direction. If we’re confused or lost, all we have to do is ask Him for wisdom. It’s good to know we will never be left alone because our Guide has promised to never leave us or forsake us.

It's comforting to know He will always see us home.

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth” (John 16:13).
