We have a fenced yard, and there has been a plastic bag blowing around it for a week. The wind blows it to a different location, and it sticks to the fence. Everytime my little dog goes outside, he sees it, and charges toward it barking his little head off. I may not know much about the direction of my life, but at least I know, that’s the same plastic bag!
I don’t have a good sense of direction. When I am planning to drive somewhere, the GPS gets plugged in. Even if I have driven there before, I will still turn it on, and click ‘recent destinations.’
I get distracted easily. While I’m writing this Blog, I’ll think, “I’ll pull up messenger, and say ‘Good Morning’ to Seymour.” The conversation starts, and an hour later…”Oh yea! I was writing a Blog!!!” If you are a Blogger, do you have unfinished pieces in your draft folder?
I do. They start out good, like something I believe God wants me to share, but then I get distracted by everything going on around me, and I lose it. Maybe we should just hit ‘Publish’, on those unfinished pieces, and see if they sound complete to others.
When we stop writing our story, WordPress saves it as a draft, kinda like God.
It’s unfinished, and we pause to reflect on where we are. We have an internal GPS that we need to follow. I will use the Tom Tom I had plugged in yesterday as an example.
It was cloudy yesterday, so my GPS didn’t have a clear signal. When it announced an upcoming direction to take, it started stuttering. I laughed, but that upcoming direction makes me stutter sometimes too.
I love the ‘rerouting’ capability of the GPS. My daughter and I were driving the other day, and while I was using the GPS, it wasn’t telling me where to go. I asked, “Why is it so quiet?” My daughter said, “Because you passed your the street, so she keeps rerouting.” I get quiet too.
How many times have I driven by somewhere God wanted me to turn?
God is our GPS. Sometimes where He wants us to go, is uncharted territory, and it makes us stutter. My Tom Tom has gotten me lost before, by giving me wrong directions, but those times landed me right where I needed to me. Feeling lost doesn’t last. If we continue not to listen, or stay distracted too long, God is always there. He just clicks, ‘Reroute.’
