I inched along the unfamiliar street, looking from the GPS on my phone to the street signs, trying to figure out where I was. I sighed. It happened again. I was lost.
I’m famed for losing my way, even on the most familiar streets. On that day, though, I was in a strange neighborhood, trying to find a house where I was to deliver a meal to a family whose mom was undergoing chemo.
I had been having such a good time, practicing the presence of Christ. I’ve been writing about it in my morning blogs. I applied the idea to walking. Click here to read about the best walking buddy. Then it occurred to me that I could do the same thing while I was driving. I imagined Jesus sitting in my backseat, just out of my range of vision. I had been enjoying talking things over with the Lord — before I lost my way.
Suddenly I smacked myself on the forehead. I had the Master of the Universe who knows the paths of the stars — sitting in my backseat! “Lord,” I said. “You know exactly where I am and I think you care about the family getting this meal while it is hot. Would you please help me get there — because I don’t have a clue how to do it myself.”
I took the next right turn and in a few moments found myself on the elusive street — even in the right hundred block. In minutes I was at the door with the food in hand.
The point of this slump-time blog? Well, I really wanted to tell you that story, which I thought was pretty cool. But it also applies to our need for direction and help when we hit our daily slump. He was faithful to me when I asked for help. He will be faithful to help you, too!
Eating to live and living for Christ,
