How can we know the way?

Location: Fontana Village, N.C.

Mile: 165.9

Please read: John 14: 5-14

John 14: 5-6 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus answered , I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.

Approximately 165,000 white blazes mark the path of the Appalachian Trail to show hikers the way from Georgia to Maine.

These white blazes can be seen mostly on trees, but also on stone boulders, posts, sidewalks, streets, and buildings.

My family will tell you that I get easily lost while in the woods. I have a very poor sense of direction. However, this simple system of white blazes has served me well, and I have not been lost, yet….

Similarly, Jesus’ answer to Thomas’s question is very simple. Jesus answered, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.

Lord Jesus, I tend to complicate things. Please help me to keep your simple truths simple.

I have not seen any bears.


To all my fishin’ buddies. Yes, it’s almost time for spring fishin’ in Alabama. However, I’m in the right place.

Hints of spring in the lower elevations. I’m about to enter the Smokies, I bet I see a lot more winter.

I hope all are as blessed as I am!
