Today while walking to work, I began to get frustrated with all of the people either stopping to talk in the middle of the walk way, or just walking without purpose. What’s walking without purpose you ask-people who are walking and instead of asking for directions/guidance they would much rather be “lost”. You may ask why did God show that to me? Well, I asked the same question. LOL, God was showing me how easy it is to look every which way, but up. See, so many people relay on their GPS to tell them where to go, it’s like their bible nowadays. BUT, little do you know. God is the only GPS you will ever need. For example-When you’re moving through life and you feel like each turn you make, you arrive at a dead end. A lot of times you curse the “enemy” for misleading you. Well, get ready for this. The enemy can’t do ANYTHING without God’s approval. As I’m typing this, I am reminded of a trip I took 2 summers ago to New York. I went to visit a friend and while we had fun, a few things kept happening that I didn’t quite understand. We had set out for a night of fun in the city, when we quickly became lost. While I was waiting for her to find her way, God spoke and literally knocked the wind out of me. HE said, you will continue to be lost following those that are lost themselves. Now let me tell you, that shook me up like you wouldn’t believe. She did nothing wrong, I was at the right place at the right time. See, God had to get me out of my element- HE will take you to a place and will show you were NOT to be all at the same time. Make sense? (I’ll come back to this later) The morning before we left-my husband and I almost got into a car accident, the bus was delayed, it broke down it was a hot mess but GOD! Every calamity that I had endured back then and a lot along the way, prepared me for this very moment. My sense of direction comes from God-I chose to accept him fully, not paying attention to anything else but him. When I’m lost, he finds me and shows me how to get back on track. I am NOT a saint, and I don’t pretend to be. What I am, is a child of God. Who’s NOT afraid to speak his word, believe HIM for everything and teach his word to all that will listen. HE chose me, and while it is a constant struggle of being torn between believing if I’m worthy of what he has called me to do and leaving certain people/things behind-I would much rather have him guide me, than an automated voice telling me to turn here, stop here- move there. When I pray, that is me entering in my location, when he speaks that is him giving me my direction. The next time you find yourself being lost, unsure of which way to look.. Look UP! His word tells us to Look towards the hills, whence cometh my help.
