The Bridge to Nowhere

The Bridge to Nowhere - September 26, 2005

"Barricade the road that goes Nowhere, Grace me with you clear revelation. I choose the true road to Somewhere." Psalms 119:31 (The Message)

What an amazing sight to me, the bridge to nowhere, which I saw in the outskirts of Pittsburgh recently. The story goes, when the hurricane of 2004 came through, the bridge was washed from its original foundation. It moved down the way a bit, and landed on a spot where one end just lead into a field. I dubbed it "The bridge to nowhere." It started out somewhere, but ended up leading nowhere.

How life can engulf us like that? We can have a spiritual beginning, with Sunday School, Parochial School, or perhaps through Christian parents or grandparents. Then, boom, a storm of life can push us from our firm foundation, and our spiritual bridge can lead us to nowhere; just to the wilderness, a place with no revelation.

We must ask God to give us strength to choose the true road to "Somewhere", the true road of our Spiritual walk with Him, even when the storms of life try to knock us off course. We must ask for His clear revelation, as the Word says, not allowing things of this world to push us into a barren wasteland.

The Psalmist goes on to say, "teach me your ways, give me understanding and direct me in the path of your commands. Give me a heart of your words of wisdom, and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things, and invigorate me on the pilgrim way." Yes. That is where our bridge should take us, to the road of love and light; God's road for our life!

the narrow path

Sometimes it is so hard to do the right thing... to not let the things of this world deter us from the narrow path that we are called to travel down. So many times do we have good intentions, but it seems something gets in our way sooner or later. The road that leads somewhere, I think, would be the narrow path as Jesus explains.

"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it." Matthew 7:13-14
Thank you for posting that! It really spoke to my spirit because I have felt like I was in a wooded area with nothing! I was just empty, because I let the storms of life take over. Now I know that God is in control and I have given it back to him!
