Isn’t that how we are as Christians sometimes? We want to take the easy road, the one that we are used to and familiar with. We want the ride to be stress free with no wrong turns. But of course that isn’t how it is. We are always making wrong turns and ending up in places we don’t want to be. It would be so easy to just take a few minutes and learn our way around with the help of God, but like me, we don’t want to take the time. We rather get lost and then complain about it.
I have found that the more I begin to pay attention to where I am, the easier it gets. I have finally given in to the fact that if I want to get to where I’m going without getting lost, I must give up my old way of “driving”. I must be open to learning new routes and asking directions when needed.
I’m so glad that God is patient with me as I continue to learn my away around in my life. He is always there pointing me in the right direction. It comforting to know that with His help, I know I will be heading in the right direction when it is time to go home; NORTH!
