As I make progress on my spiritual path, I acknowledge and embrace it. I see how the Christ Presence within lifts me into new ways of thinking and being. I express my divine nature and experience the peace that comes with new spiritual understanding.
My quest for Truth is lifelong, and I joyously dedicate myself to the search. I open my heart and mind to a new order of things. I listen in the Silence, when my mind is most receptive. I wait for answers to be revealed for my faith is strong and anchored in God.
I am a spiritual pilgrim traveling ever upward. The new order of my life is revealed in moments of inspiration and feelings of compassion. I am aware of the activity of Spirit in all things.
He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection.—1 Peter 1:3

— Ecclesiastes 3:11
Have you ever used GPS? Many cars come equipped with it today, and you can get it on an iPhone or other mobile device. The problem is, sometimes GPS can lead you in the wrong direction!
I read about a motorist relying on GPS in Milwaukee who ended up on a snowmobile trail. Several miles down the frozen path, she stopped and couldn't turn around. In about a foot and a half of snow, she had to call 9-1-1. The officer responding said, "People shouldn't believe everything those things tell you."
Take this sophisticated technology and compare it to birds. There are some amazing little birds God has created that have an internal homing instinct which is more sophisticated then the latest GPS technology.
Consider the Manx Shearwater. These amazing birds nest off of the coast of Wales. They are noted for their outstanding homing instinct. Scientists tagged and released a number of them at different points around the globe to see whether they could find their way back to the coast of Wales.
One bird was released in Boston, some 3,200 miles from home. In just over 12 days, that bird returned to his nest, having traveled 250 miles per day from a place it had never been before to reach its home again.
Then there is the Golden Plover. Native to Hawaii, the Plover migrates during the summer to the Aleutian Isles, 1,200 miles away. There they mate and lay their eggs, and their little fledglings are born. Then the Golden Plovers return to Hawaii, leaving their fledglings to grow up a little. What is amazing is that these little birds later make the 1,200-mile journey—to a place they have never been!
Try doing that with GPS!
That is an amazing homing instinct. So the next time someone calls you a "birdbrain," you might take it as a compliment.
I think, in a sense, all of us have a homing instinct as humans. It is a homesickness for heaven. God has essentially wired us this way; the Bible says that God has "set eternity in our hearts" (see Ecclesiastes 3:11).
Just like those Manx Shearwaters and Golden Plovers, we have this built-in GPS. So follow that instinct!

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom
of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor
adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor
extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." 1 Corinthians
People have the idea today that it is okay to live in immorality and
that God is going to overlook their little indiscretions. Is that so?
"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man
soweth, that shall he also reap" (Galatians 6:7). God
doesn't miss a beat of our lives. He is the righteous judge and
will judge accordingly (see Hebrews 13:4).
"Well Pastor, does that mean that if I have done any of these
things, I can't be saved?"
No! 1 Corinthians 6:11 promises: "And such were some of you: but
ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name
of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." Hallelujah!
There is no sin so awful that the blood of Christ cannot cleanse. He
makes the vilest sinner clean.
Nothing-not your worst offense-stands between you and the
Cross. . .between you and forgiveness. . .between you and a loving
Heavenly Father-nothing but your hesitation. Come to Him. He
longs to receive you.
