We get one life. We get some instruction and help along the way, but we essentially choose for ourselves.
The one thing that is the best traveling companion is God’s Truth. Spend time in the Bible on a daily basis. If you went without food, you would feel weak. The same thing happens when we try to exist without “feeding” on God’s Word.
Proverbs 3:4-6 says this about life:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.
