I was in the car with my mom and a family friend yesterday, and my mom told me to get out the gps so we could get the directions to get back from Costco to drop off the friend. The friend then made a very interesting analogy. This is what she said:
God is like our personal GPS, no matter where we go in life, we will always have Him to guide us. We might get lost occassionally, but God will always know the best way to bring us back on track. All we need to do is listen. Even if we don’t listen, and we keep screwing up, God will always find a way, and He will bring us Home.
I found that very true and very inspirational. It was definitely a new perspective of looking at how God works in our lives.
