The Ultimate G.P.S.

The 24 GPS satellites in orbit
12,000 miles above the Earth
Last week, my husband and I purchased a Global Positioning System for our car. What an ingenious little device! As we drove along in our tiny, insignificant Cavalier (just one of the 125 million cars on the road in the USA alone) I was fascinated by the thought that this small, unassuming silver box, attached to our windshield, could direct us on our journey. And yet it is true that we were indeed connected to, and being guided by, one of the 24 satellites that orbit the Earth an incredible 12,000 miles above! No more worries about getting lost! These amazing devices know, not only where we are, but where we need to be headed.
Do you ever feel lost, tiny or insignificant as you journey in your ministry? Every day, no matter where we are, we have the privilege to be connected to and guided by the ultimate G.P.S.- God's Positioning System. He knows exactly where we are and where we need to be headed. We can trust that He will faithfully guide us there. Turn on your G.P.S!
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying,
"This is the way, walk in it." Isaiah 30:21


  1. Such an excellent thought and so succinctly put. You really do a great job with your blog.

  2. Couldn't agree more with the previous comment, Glenys. I get so much from your blogs. X

  3. Thank you so much for the encouragement friends...I love it when you comment :)

  4. Hey Glenys great blog, hope we don't get lost when we go in search of our Grandchild!

  5. I, too, am in love with my GPS, but I've never made the conscious connection with that helpful device and God. You're so right—God acts as our navigational system, and if we put our lives into His hands, we can be sure that we're on the right path and will reach our ideal destination—Heaven. Thank you for this eye-opening blog post!

  6. You're so welcome Cathy & thanks for commenting! Nice website by the way :)
