For Christians, the book that guides them to a healthy spiritual life is the Bible. Mac Wiseman’s version of “I’m Using My Bible For A Roadmap” awakens the sleeping soul with his amazing voice and particular take on the song.
Just as with Mac Wiseman’s songs, “Did She Mention My Name” and “The Wild Side of Life,” the bluegrass and country singer always brought a uniqueness to them, earning himself a number of prestigious awards.
The song “I’m Using My Bible For A Roadmap,” written by Charles Schroeder and Don Reno, was originally recorded by Red Smiley and The Tennessee Cutups. The record was then released in March 1952.
Meaning Behind the Song
The version of “I’m Using My Bible For A Roadmap” by Mac Wiseman, like the original song, implies the purpose of the holy book, The Bible.
To followers and believers of Christ, The Bible is a book of teachings we can learn and use as we navigate life and its challenges.
The song’s lyrics tell us that the Bible is the guide to heaven, which will be our last stop if ever the day comes. The song also reminds us that there is no shortcut to reaching heaven and that Jesus will be the one guiding us safely to that peaceful destination.
Indeed, in this rough roller coaster ride that we call life, it is important that our faith be established through the humble teachings brought by life experiences. All roads will be safe, patch-free, obstacle-free, and easy to navigate if we learn to accept Jesus and believe in His guidance and healing.
