Life Map


How are we supposed to know what to do in our lives? We hear people talk about God directing and guiding them, but what does that mean? I know there are times in my life when I asked this question. There are times in life when we simply want a map drawn out for us, with arrows pointing our way. This is not reality, but the idea sure is nice. Reality is, God has given us free will. Because of this awesome gift of free will, we have the opportunity to draw our own life map. As we face each day we are given a clean slate. We can begin that daily map as soon as we open our eyes. As we know, when we consciously give thanks to God…and ask for His guidance throughout the day…our day will begin in the right direction. Yes, we will be given road blocks throughout or day, but this is when we seek God again, and ask Jesus to help us react in the right way. As we draw closer to God, we will begin to notice God’s subtle direction. We will be able to read God’s Word, and find direction in the scriptures. The more trust we have that God is in control, the more peace we will find as we live and create our own life maps.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path. PROVERBS 3:5-6

So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. HEBREWS 10:35-36

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. HEBREWS 11:1

God is with us.
