‘When people search for happiness, significance, fulfilment, meaning and purpose in life, they cannot pursue these things on a path that is devoid of spiritual input. To journey through life on this kind of barren and desolate path is to journey without the True North’ ~Theresa Froehlich

Explorers have often used the term ‘True North’. It is a point of reference from which all things either begin or end. There is a lovely saying that says it is good to have an end to journey towards but it is the journey that matters in the end. Spiritually we call our true north, God. People refer to God in lots of different ways but when we talk about ‘True North’ we speak of someone who guides, supports, motivates, gives us meaning and purpose, is 100% on our side, always by our side, journeys with us through thick and thin, encourages, uplifts, energises and helps us on our daily journey. So spiritually our true north is worth a lot and makes our journey through life much more manageable. Our Lenten journey gives us plenty of time and opportunities to help us find our God or our true north. Life can sometimes put us in a spin and we lose direction. Having some true north in our lives puts us less in a spin and much more in control of where we are going.
