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!!

I hear ya on being a SAHM in the summer…for me it is just the right amount of time…
I love the analogy of the GPS and God…how true… I guess the worrying is what makes us human.. I am such a slacker some days.. I need to make time to pray… everyday…many times a day!
Have a nice day!
You find a way all the time to relate everyday things to God…and how He cares for us and just life lessons in general. I totally need to learn better to rely on that GPS…it truly is the only WAY to go.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
You should totally do a VLOG.
I used to be a Kindergarten teacher…how about that? or did you know that already?
I LOVE being at SAHM all summer…nothing like it! but I also love getting back to the classroom come September, too! Your post kind of goes along with my recent one on Trusting.
Enjoy your weekend..maybe I’ll see ya on Facebook.
I struggle with the same thing. I wonder why we have so much trouble trusting God when He has proven Himself faithful time and time again? But thank you for this wonderul reminder to keep trusting in Him regardless.
Hope you’re having a great weekend my friend!
Who would have thought that a little GPS system could teach such a spriritual truth. Thanks for sharing it with us. I know I can be reminded of this on a regular basis.
