At last - I've joined the 21st century with a blog. What a word - blog. A few years ago it meant nothing, yet today, millions of people know exactly what it means. Words are funny like that. They are my favorite tools and toys. In fact, though they can be ever new and changing, they are also some of the oldest things around: "In the beginning was the Word ... "

So, I try to keep in touch with those words, and maintain my focus by keeping my eyes on my Leader so I know where I'm headed. How do I manage this? By keeping Him always before me - up front where I can see Him.

Yet He is also beside me, close enough to whisper in my ear or catch me if I'm falling.

How can this be? How can someone be two places at the same time?

"I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved" (Psalm 16:8 NKJV).

My Leader can be two places at the same time because He is the Lord. I'm so glad He's the one who is leading.
