Yesterday I went to visit a friend and I haven’t been to her house before. Now if you know me I am not very good at following directions or reading a map. I also don’t have a GPS. I know it is something that I need to look at getting.
I picked up my niece on the way and we made it to my friend’s house with only two stops to look at the road map.
Now the issue for me is that I concentrate so well on getting to the place, that I am not thinking about how to get home.
So it was raining and we had the soundtrack of Frozen playing in the car.
My niece is in the back of the car singing and not worrying about anything much at all. I hear the occasionally Aunty Tracey can you put that song on again, can you turn it up.
I turn down a wrong street and I am saying to her does this look like the way we came.
She said no and still singing Let It Go. I think that she is busy being in the production of Frozen.
So I turn back and I can feel the frustration and anxiety rising up in me.
I stop and then I look at the road map again and the streets aren’t very well signed. (Looking for a ooh poor thing here).
So I turn the car around and I am thinking that this girl my beautiful niece in the back is trusting me she is not worried at all that I am having a little freak out moment (quietly in my head) about trying to get us home.
She is completely trusting me and singing very loudly now to Do You Want to Build A Snowman.
It is getting darker and the rain is coming down heavier now.
So I have to trust myself that this road I have decided to drive down will lead up to the main road.
I am looking at buildings, at paddocks trying to see if anything looks familiar. I have a little moment that I am thinking I am on the right road.
I said to my niece does this look familiar?
She looks around but keeps singing.
We finally make it to the main road where I know exactly how to get home.
It made me think that how many times in our lives when we say we place our trust in God and then we are having our own little lost moments. We are having our own little anxious moments.
I sometimes am thinking am I on the right road that would lead me to what he wants me to do?
How beautiful would it be just to sing and know that He has everything in control?
To totally trust Him and go where He wants to lead us.
To fully surrender.
I think for me this is a journey that I am discovering myself.
I need to trust and just like my niece sing-
LET IT GO…
And yes we did make it home maybe a bit later, all good.
