Some of the biggest arguments with my husband are in the car when we are trying to decide whether or not to follow the G.P.S.’s guidance. Especially, if we are in unfamiliar territory. Especially, if it doesn’t synch up with the verbal directions given by a local. I’ll comment that the way we’re going doesn’t look right. Or that I don’t understand where the G.P.S. is taking us. My husband’s retort is, “Make up your mind, trust the G.P.S. or turn it off.” Sometimes faith can feel like that too. Do we trust God to get us to our destination? Do we proceed with confidence even when we don’t recognize the milestones along the way? Do we follow God taking every directed turn? We have a choice to make. It is not easy to trust an electronic gadget that speaks in monotones and fits in my hands. God keeps encouraging me to trust in him because my life is in his hands. In his big, capable, safe, tender and real hands.
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
