    What a great analogy on trusting God! I’m so glad he never leaves us or forsakes us!

    I’m so glad that I have the Lord for my GPS in life!! My husband will use his Garmin when needed, so that’s good. We just all need to stop and look at the map sometimes, huh? Great post!

    I love this analogy. I think ive done a mixture of both. I fight against the path bu then i follow it when I see it heading in the direction I wanted.

      Thank you, Alvina. I think we all have done this at one point or another. It’s so easy to say “Trust God” and “Have Faith” when it is smoothing sailing. When you’re going through difficult times is when we really need to put it into action and know that God’s in control. He has our best interest in His heart and mind, and He will not let go of us, especially in our time of need!

    I try to trust that He knows what my best destination is. Sometimes it’s a struggle not to try to get more of my own wants instead.

      It is, indeed, a struggle, Ellen.
