Have you ever been the midst of fog?
Driving down the highway with only a few feet of visibility?
You could be just a short distance from a beautiful vast ocean and not be able to see it.
You look up in the sky and all you see is a dense heavy layer of fog.
Driving in the fog can be quite scary at times. You have your headlights on, drive slower, more cautiously, keeping your eyes open for other vehicles on the road – especially slower vehicles. Sometimes you have to strain to see the lines on the road in order for you to stay in your lane and not cross over into oncoming traffic.
You keep driving in faith that you will reach your destination. You know your destination is there - Even if you’ve never been there before, you know it is there.
This is the way life is. We never really know what’s up ahead. We thrust forward believing that what lays ahead will provide a happier brighter future for us.
Would you be driving around in the fog if you had no destination?
Probably not. The question is – Are you living your life in this fog?
Do you know where you’re going and how to get there?
Have you pulled out your map of life and written down the directions to get where you want to go?
You say there is no map of life???
But, there is …..
If you’re like most people, you probably find a car to follow when you’re driving in the fog. You utilize not only the light of their car – but also rely on the fact that they have already driven the road that you will soon be on.
You’ll find that many people have been where you are now and have arrived at where you want to be. They have taken various roads to get there. Discover the various paths they took and find the road with the least resistance to follow.
This is the map of life – Find somebody that is where you want to be … and follow their map. It’s so much easier than driving down an unmarked dirt road that has never been travelled before. Stop driving aimlessly in the fog of life.
