Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Psalm 143:8
Ever been lost? I have. And this day, so was this young lady. She pulled her car up beside mine. Gesturing while talking frantically, she said she had no idea where she was or how to get where she needed to go. Fortunately for her, I was heading in the right direction, so I suggested that she follow me. Looking much relieved, she smiled, made a u-turn and headed after me.
I kept an eye on her position, watching vehicles that got in between us and slowed down so she could catch up when they turned off. She probably was thinking this seems so out of the way. I wonder if this lady really knows where I need to go? I probably would have thought the same thing, but this was my stomping grounds so I knew where I was. She would just have to trust me.
Soon I would be at my destination and I would have to turn off. I did not explain that to her. Would she turn when I did? I had no way to tell her to keep going on the road we were on and soon she would be where she wanted to go. I put on my blinker and turned. I was hoping she would pull up beside me so I could explain, but she pulled around me and kept going, which would lead her into a housing development. I watched for her to realize that and make another u-turn and she did. I hope she got to her destination okay. At least she turned heading north in the right direction.
This reminds of my spiritual journey. I often think I know best where I am going and then I realize I am lost; way in over my head. Fortunately we serve a God who is never in “over His head”. He always knows the way. He never gets tired of watching over us. I love that about Him, don’t you?
Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. John 12:26
