And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
One thing I enjoy about driving on the open road are the rare moments that everyone is quiet and I have time to think, ponder or praise the Lord in my own way. On my last trip to Dallas I was blessed with a few moments like that. Here is what stuck with me the most.
My GPS is a life line when I travel. I have no since of direction. I have gotten lost in my own town. Recently. I have lived here almost all of my 30 something years. In school, I learned that North is always up. So mentally, I think north is above my head. I am really that bad. With my gps, I type in where I want to go and I do what it says.
Of course, as in my walk with the Lord, I don't always understand or listen. This means I miss and exit and take a wrong turn. My GPS (like God) faithfully reroutes me on the right path. Sometimes I miss the same exit several times. Did I mention that I am not good at following directions sometimes? It is usually because I am not paying attention or I am moving to fast or slow.
Oh, yes. I do that spiritually as well. I am glad that my God is a god of grace because sometimes I need a few chances to get things right. He doesn't give up on me no matter how directionally challenged I am. He has a plan and a direction for me.
Now, on the latest trip my GPS failed me for the first time. It took me to a very dead end and wanted me to keep going! There was no road, only abandoned rail-road tracks.
I am thankful that God doesn't fail me.Unlike my GPS, he is all knowing and he never leads me astray. I am thankful for that.
t is so easy to forget all of the amazing things that God has done for me and all of the amazing ways that he has changed me from the person that was before I knew him, to the person that I am now. Granted, I am still a sinner, imperfect, and full of faults but he has truly done a wondrous work in me.
I want to take time on this page to remember and thank the Lord for his endless grace, limitless love and the ultimate sacrifice of his only begotten son that I might be saved and set free from my sin.
