I went to a restaurant today.
Not really knowing the way, I relied on a friend to take me there.
I was never in the driver’s seat.
After getting out of the car, we met other friends who had driven there, as well.
After parking the vehicles, we had to walk quite a bit to get to the particular restaurant we were going to.
One person I was with had been there before, so he led the way.
The walkways were crowded, but we were able to follow him through all the turns–past this building and that building.
In fact, it took about twenty minutes to finally arrive at our destination.
There wasn’t a single moment that I was concerned.
Trusting that he knew just where to walk, I simply followed and enjoyed friendly conversation along the way.
After lunch, when it was time to go home, I still had no idea which way led back to the cars.
Trusting my friend once again, I simply followed.
When I got into the car, I had no idea how to get back to the highway and go home.
That wasn’t a problem at all.
I wasn’t driving, but another friend was.
She knew the way home.
There wasn’t a single moment when I was concerned about not knowing the way back.
I trusted her.
As we drove away, there was a long curve in front of us.
Beautiful trees stood in the median, creating a peaceful scene before us.
Sometimes we find ourselves not knowing which way to go in life.
We have to rely on God to take us there.
We aren’t in the driver’s seat.
Since God is the only one who knows where He wants us to go, we have to follow Him.
We are able to follow Him through all the turns–past this situation and that situation.
In fact, it’s going to take us the rest of our lives to reach all the destinations He has planned for us.
As His children, there is no cause for concern.
There may be a long curve in front of us sometimes, but looking to God will bring a peaceful calm.
We can trust Him to know the way.
