Wrong Turns

We rarely use roadmaps anymore. In days gone by, I was the navigator on all of our road trips. I recall this one particular trip that we took with a group of friends that took a wrong turn. There we were, a big group of couples headed to a retreat and we were having a blast. We were laughing and having a great time as we played a word game traveling along in a van. Suddenly we realized we had missed a turn by about 100 miles. It was a difficult realization, but in retrospect it was relatively comical. Pre GPS, our group pulled out a map in an attempt to come up with another route. My husband didn’t hesitate to offer up my navigation services, and after a brief collaboration, off we went. That day my friends put their trust in me to get us to our location and from that moment on we had a shared experiential saying; ‘we are never lost, we just got there another way’ and the ever funny ‘always stay on pavement’.

Proverbs‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭TPT

“Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.”

Country roads, highways and byways, they can all be tricky, but when we rely on a good navigator, we can know that we will always arrive at our appointed destination. When we rely on the Lord to guide us, we can be assured that He will lead us in the right direction, every single time. When we do we will have the assurance that we will always arrive at the right place, at the right time and smack dab in the middle of the God’s good purpose. When we trust in the Lord with our decisions and our direction, He will be our guide and He’s the world’s best navigator.
