Yesterday was a blessed day, and today I can honestly say that I feel more clear-headed than I have in a while. The primary reason for this is that I had a long-overdue prayer time with someone very special to my family. During this prayer, I was reminded of a concept that seems so far removed from mainstream Christianity (no offense intended to anyone). 

 

Let us consider the concept of a Spiritual GPS. Physically we have Tom-Tom, Siri, Garmin and other names to help us stay on the right path. But what about spiritually? That path is often the most difficult to discern, and yet we seem to forget that the Name of ALL Names is the one who holds that satellite. 

 

Let us look at Scripture for a moment before I continue. 

 

Proverbs 3:6 "In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths" (KJV)

 

Psalm 27:11 "Teach me your way, O LORD, and lead me in a level path, because of my enemies" (KJV)

 

Psalm 119:35 "Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight" (NIV)

 

All throughout scripture, there is confirmation that following the path of the Lord is the only way to true contentment and success. In this life, however, finding that path can be quite a challenge. I think that many times, people simply forget that God knows all and can do anything. Beyond reading the words on a page and saying that we believe, we have to "put feet to our prayers", as a very wise old friend used to say. Maybe that is where I have been lacking, is by not fighting hard enough and making those decisions that will place me on one path or another. 

 

I have been struggling for the past two years to find my place in this world. Part of me wants to be a hard, tough person that fights bad people and rides off into the sunset. Another part of me wants to do what my heart loves, which means further settling into domesticity, which has never been my thing. As I continue battling, I am going to make it my focus this year to put myself aside, and to look to the only one, true being that knows what the best path is for me. Now, I just have to trust Him to lead me there.
