In this age of fast travel and confusing schedules, it is easy to lose track of our lives.
There are two tracks...God’s track and ours. The question is how we might join them
into one track without bumps and jolts as we travel through our lives. The answer may
be easily understood.
God has a plan for our lives...a destination. We also have plans and goals which we
desire to realize. As we worship God each Sabbath and discover His will for our lives, ©
He will give us direction, that finally the two tracks might converge smoothly into one.
Get on track...God’s track. Have a safe journey.
