Navigating to a new place before the days of GPS required a map, a general sense of cardinal directions, and a basic understanding of what one may encounter along the route. With these tools navigating from city to city or even across state lines is a fairly simple process.
Except when it isn’t.
Despite having great tools, sometimes I would still get lost! It’s so easy to miss a street sign, take a wrong turn, or simply be distracted.
Sometimes I had to ask for directions, talk to one familiar with the area who could point me in the right direction, help me better navigate the unknowns.
Then I needed to act in confidence. Take the information received, process it, make a decision, and move forward.
Such is the journey we walk through life.
We need the right tools, the skills needed to use them, and the competence and confidence to actually put them to work.
Sometimes we need to ask for directions, talk to one familiar with the area who can point us in the right direction, help us better navigate the unknowns.
Then we need to act in confidence. Take the information received, process it, make a decision, and move forward.
That’s how we chart a course, to a new city, through unknown territory, and through life.
By Les Patterson
No matter winds that strongly blow
Impacting my charted course
The flight of life is solely mine
Regardless of the outside force
To keep me on my plotted path
Internal controls I adjust
Slight correction keeps me focused
The course to follow I will trust
Destination I keep in sight
The skies to soar with aided lift
I’m the pilot yet God I trust
His direction a needed gift
At the helm I will stay the course
To weather the storm come what may
Through the calm and the torrent seas
I will sail on day after day
Step confidently into your GREATNESS my friends and NAVIGATE YOUR CHARTED COURSE!
Have a great Monday! Thanks for letting me share!
p.s. Take 13 minutes today to ponder where your charted course is leading you.
