God in Every Direction
“The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road.” Psalm 19:8
“Look back and thank God.
Look forward and trust God.
Look around and serve God.
Look within and find God!”
As a farm girl from Iowa I learned the global directions as part of daily living—“I’ll be in the north field until noon” or “Go half a mile south and
turn right and you’ll find the schoolhouse.”
However, since I moved into Sun City, the sun has come up in the north. I’m 90 degrees off most of the time when I try to figure out where I am. Perhaps it is because the first time I came to Sun City, I flew in to visit my parents and the airplane must have made a 90-degree around the airport before landing.
I’m grateful for my G.P.S., but a bit embarrassed that I have to use it to find my way around my own neighborhood.
In our work and in our relationships we need to figure out where we are and then how we can make things right. We can look back and see how we’ve created challenging situations. We can look forward to better days, opportunities to change. We can look around and see where we can make a difference in someone else’s day, and we can look within for satisfaction.
In my relationship with God, I don’t have to worry about which direction to seek him, and better yet, I’m never lost!
Dear God, thank you for your global positioning at all times,
