Need Directions?

How many of you remember these?
You young'uns might have never seen one.

We don’t see weather vanes much anymore.

I sure could use one of these on my car. It has one of those new-fangled GPS things but I haven’t figured it out.  

I have zero sense of direction. No, really, I mean it! North, south, east, west – forget it. I can get lost before I drive out of my driveway.

So I guess you could say I’m directionless. 

As I watched this arrow turn with the wind, I realized that sometimes I’m lost in my life.
  • I face a hard decision and I don’t know which way to go.
  • Situations challenge my beliefs and I waver in the wind.
  • I’m tripped up by temptations because I’m not watching where I’m going.

There is a remedy – a Person – to point me in the right direction.

The Lord is a whisper away.
How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. Isaiah 30:19b

The Lord is here we need to make a decision.
This is what the LORD says-- your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. Isaiah 48:17

The Lord is here to lean on when we need to stand strong.
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. John 16:13a

The Lord protects us when a temptation looms before us.
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
1 Corinthians 10:13

 This is the kind of guidance we all need!

Recently, I have needed God's guidance to make difficult decisions.
What help do you need from Him right now?


  1. I'm so glad knowing God's there to help me through the tough times. What would we do without Him?

    1. Isn't that the truth! I'd certainly be lost. Thanks for commenting.
