 In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.–Proverbs 16:9 (NIV)

Maps were a mystery to me.  After all, I didn’t need to use one in the small farm town where I grew up.  But, Seattle was different.  Unfamiliar bridges, detours, and people who attended the Move-It-or-Lose-It-School of-Driving seemed to dot every hill, loop, and crossing.  I was directionally challenged and didn’t know where I was headed.

Have you been in a similar situation?  Do you ever find yourself thinking, Where are you taking me, Lord?  I didn’t anticipate this bend in the road.

He may lead you through unexpected terrain.  In a different direction.  Even to a place with a completely different view.

To get to the place you need to be, ask Him for direction.  You’ll never be lost when He’s behind the wheel.

Just for Today:  Ask Him to lead you–toward growth, forgiveness, becoming.
