for we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7, ESV)
If you have ever done night navigation or gone hiking in the dark, you know how easy it is for trees to jump up and hit you. It is a challenge to know which direction to go while trying to keep yourself safe and unharmed. Sometimes it seems that our walk with God is like that. We are stumbling along trying to figure out where He is leading. Be assured, He will get us to where He wants us, but we have to be willing to trust him completely. You might get a few scrapes in the process, but the ultimate completion of the course is greater than passing any night nav course.
Prayer: Lord, you are my true azimuth.
