It takes us several tries to figure out where we’re going, or even what direction we’re supposed to be going. We don’t always know, and sometimes what we want to do and where we want to go keeps shifting. So the question that keeps recurring is, “What am I supposed to be doing?”
We don’t always know, and sometimes we’ll never know. But there are always things along the way that keep guiding us which direction might be best. When we’re having a bad day, or even week, we start to wonder, “Is this the way I should be going?” Sometimes we want to just give up and sit on the couch, or bed, all day. But we have those friends that are walking alongside us and help us. They listen. They respond, and not always with the best advice, but sometimes the best. Even God used a donkey to get a point across to someone.
We don’t always get the answers we want, but sometimes they’re what we need. Life isn’t exactly focused around us. Our galaxy has a gravitational pull around the sun. Even earth is not the center of our galaxy. Something much bigger than ourselves is pulling us in a general direction. Even though (most) planets don’t sway in and out of their gravitational pull, we do sometimes. Pluto doesn’t have a specific orbit. It’s all out of whack. But it still stays in orbit around the sun. God has created us for a certain purpose, and even though we don’t get to see the blueprints of our lives, and we don’t know the final outcome, we’re still called for a greater purpose. We may sway in and out of line from time to time, but we’re still following God, who is much greater than ourselves. As long as we keep Him as the center of our lives, we can know that we’ll make it to wherever it is He’s taking us.
