Directionally Challenged


I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.  Jeremiah 29:11 MSG

I use GPS to give me direction when I’m in an unfamiliar area. It’s probably one of the most well used application on my phone. There have been times when talking with someone who knows the area that I’ve discovered they know a short-cut or an easier route. Often I hear them say, “GPS will try to take you this way, but if you take this other way, you’ll get there faster.”

I know some wonderful people who are directionally challenged. No really! They don’t know their north from their south, their east from their west or their up from their down. But worst still is they don’t know how to use GPS or refuse to learn the very thing to give them the step by step instructions on how to get to where they’re headed.

My dear friends, some of us are this way with our lives. We’d rather call a friend for a quick fix or have them tell us what to do rather then sit and learn to hear Gods voice who will constantly be our source of direction. He already knows the plans He has for you, wouldn’t it make sense to go right to him?

Tune out the voice of social media. Pick up Gods Word, the Bible and ask Him your questions. The answers are in the book! You can actually use a bible application and put in a couple words and it will bring up all the verses linked to that search criteria. How easy is that?! I had to look in the concordance in the back of the bible to find verses.

Direction is appreciated more when you have to find it yourself. Oh trust me, God will direct your steps, but you must be moving for that to happen. Don’t let the fear of making a wrong turn keep you from going in the general direction. It’s the journey worth taking even filled with twists and turns. It enables you to see and experience things you never would have experienced sitting in the comfort of your easy chair.

It also allows you the joy of meeting new people and investing a part of yourself into their future. We’re connected for purpose so find yours and get moving. You’ll never be lost for God knows right where you are. Simply stop and ask Him what His purpose is for you being there and take a look around and act on His leading.

Father, here it is another week and I’m moving toward somewhere. I will listen to Your voice, even if it makes no sense to me, I’ll trust You in the process. It’s all for You and for Your Kingdom. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
