Greetings from La Ceiba, Honduras. I arrived yesterday afternoon to join our team from StoneBridge on a week long mission trip. I had to get to the Houston airport, fly to San Pedro Sula (Honduras), get on another flight to La Ceiba, and then get from the airport to the worksite. The key component to this series of hoops I had to jump through was finding a guy by the name of Alex. Alex is a friend and he happens to be from Honduras and is fluent in English and Spanish. As I got off the plane in Honduras, went through customs, and got my baggage I started to get a little nervous. I knew that if I could find Alex, I would be OK and that I wouldn’t have to worry about any of the details. Sure enough as I entered into the main atrium I caught Alex in my line of sight waving his hand at me.
A huge sense of relief came over me when Alex joined me. He explained to me that he had our airplane tickets, showed me where we could eat, translated all of my questions into Spanish, and helped me navigate through the airport. With Alex all I had to do was make sure I just stuck with him and followed his lead. It kind of reminded me about the Christian life. The Christian life is real simple….Follow Jesus. Jesus said to a worried group of disciples in John 14:6, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.’ We can worry about all the details and stress about how we’re going to get through today, tomorrow and the next week or we can just simply follow Jesus’ lead. He is fully aware of the details of our situation. He knows what we need and He love us. Let’s look for Him today and follow wherever He leads us!
