I can’t believe it has been a week since I have posted…..ugh, this happens to me this time every year!! We get so busy, but then glorious summer arrives and things get better, and then I become a blog-a-holic again. I am so thankful as a full time working mom, that I can be a full time SAHM every summer! 🙂
We all got up at 5:00am this past Saturday morning to head to SportTman’s baseball tournament in Md. Drums had programmed the GPS the night before for the remote baseball field that SportTman would be playing on at 8:00am. We started on our early morning journey and listened carefully as our GPS muttered out, “please drive to highlighted route.” It was at the point, I asked Drums if he printed out the directions to the field. “Why should I print out the directions we have this GPS to tell us exactly how to get there”, he responded. I quickly responded, “what if it doesn’t work right, or what if you put in the wrong address by accident, how can we just TOTALLY trust and rely on this thing. We should have a back up!”
But Drums tells me that he trusts the GPS, and he is sure he put in the right address, and said we will be just fine. But I just kept worrying and thinking I should have printed out the directions, just in case. I had such trouble totally relying on this GPS alone!
And that is the same problem I have with TOTALLY relying on God!! I always worry about the “what ifs” of life! But as I was reminded this past weekend as the GPS got us to the exact spot we needed to be, I can TRUST God with everything. It is so hard for me to put aside MY worries, fears, anxieties etc and rely totally on God. But the GPS this weekend reminded me that God also has His own GPS, it’s God’s Perfect System. And that is something I am learning each day to totally trust in!!
