Life – who do you do it with and who is the loudest voice in your world? Who’s the one that can move you to new ways of thinking or living. Who can change your mind on things big and small? For me – I track with God!
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all. (Message Translation)
Perfect! Here we are at the end of another year. And for me, another decade, as I’m fast approaching another ‘zero’ birthday (arghhhh). And here’s what I learn and relearn every year (and every day really). Without God in my life daily, I’d be totally lost (I mean more than when i use google maps). Some things, I just can’t figure out, and assuming that that I can or should by myself can be a massive tripping hazard. There’s poverty, crime, entitlement, road rage, the mannequin challenge, homelessness, food insecurity; all floating around in my head (you can tell I’ve been working on the God and Me Worldview series again this week, by the list of topics)and so much more in this power packed brain as well 🙂
Often there so much that we don’t understand about what’s going on around us – but I have this reassurance that this verse is true. In a more traditional wording parts of this verse read, ‘lean not on your own understanding …. He will direct your paths’. He loves us like that, to direct us to the better things of life. Even when we’ve gone to wander off on our own, to follow what seems good – He has had a way of bringing us back from the wandering track, to His track, when we ask Him into a conversation and listen for His voice, His answer. And whilst we don’t always understand the what, when, how or why – we do know that, the ‘Who’, is steadfast, upright and secure in all that He does. So that who we get to lean into when we don’t get it all and that is trust! And that is who I choose to track with. What about you?
