Several years ago while training for a triathlon, I decided to go for a long bike ride on unfamiliar roads in a remote area. About an hour into my ride, I realized that I hadn’t been paying attention to my route. I had no idea where I was and I had no idea how to get home. As nature would have it, I noticed thick black clouds rapidly moving in my direction. As I began to panic, I remembered I had a GPS on my smartphone that could guide me safely home.
In the same way, God promises to guide us in the darkness. Instead of aimless wondering through life, choose to allow God, our Great “GPS,” to lead you onward. God has given us tools to discern our direction in life–tools such as Scripture, prayer, and brothers and sisters in Christ can help direct our Christian walk. Take a few moments to reflect on your course in life. Pray for the Spirit to continue to lead and guide you as you lean into the tools God has given you.
