No better place

I've looked down other roads along the way, and from all I've seen, I can say without a doubt: There's no better place on earth than the road that leads to heaven. - Steven Curtis Chapman

I've had many opportunities throughout my life to take different routes away from the faith. They appear with regularity. Some are very convincing and enticing. They offer the prospects of fame, wealth and pleasure (at least temporarily).

Every time, I have no choice but to reject them. Not because I'm some strong Christian person, quite the contrary. It's because when I look back on what it's been like to be on this road - the experiences I've had, how I've seen God work in my life and the lives of others, the grace and mercy shown to me that I certainly don't deserve - that it would take an incredible suspension of logic and common sense for me to even consider any other route.

Though I'm still an imperfect person with struggles, my life has never been the same since I became a Christian in 1993. I have been through periods of financial security and other times close to running out. I have even tasted a little bit of earthly fame and prestige. Through all of it, I have never seen anything that compares to what I have here "on the road that leads to heaven".

I'm always praying that I'll never lose sight of this. If you're reading this now and are facing one of those other roads, I'm praying you'll remember what life has been like in Christ and see that nothing else can come close.
