Migrating the Distance

Most long distance bird migrations take place at night on pathways called flyways. Flying in the dark is not only for safety from predators but in order to use the patterns of stars and positions of the setting sun for direction. In addition, birds use smells, landmarks and the Earth’s magnetic field to guide them to their final destination.

Do we seek Him before journeying out the door? Who or what guides our daily flight out the front door of our homes can determine our destination. Once we’re out the door, what do we use to navigate obstacles and arrive safely at our final destination?

“Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” Psalm 25:4-6 (NIV)

May we use only Him as we migrate through our days.

  1. Gail, our thought processes this week must be on the same track – destination. If we don’t know where we’re headed what chances do we have of arriving on target? We need a road map – the Word of God. Thank you for your words.


    1. I love it when God does this. It’s happened a lot to me and other writers during the past month. God has must have theme-of-the-week and we stumbled upon it. ;o)
