Recalculating Route


(You can receive this Blog via email by entering your address on the right.)

I have had a portable GPS device for my car for a few years. I kind of like it because it confirms where I thought I ought be going to get to where I want to go.

Sometimes it chooses a different route then I would chose, and if I ignore it, my GPS device tells me it is Recalculating Route. Many times it will tell me to "turn around when possible". But sometimes it picks up where I am and determines a new way to get to my destination.

As we go through our lives, there are times when we choose a different route than others or even ourselves had planned. When this happens, we must become creative and begin Recalculating Route if we want to arrive at our intended destination.

Choosing a different path isn't always bad. Sometimes necessity requires it. Sometimes we just want to take a different path. The key is that we continue on to our destination.

So don't be afraid to get off the main road and try a new way of getting to where you are going. Allow your Recalculating Route to kick in.

Question: When have you changed your "route" and chose a different way of arriving at your "destination"? Share your thoughts below in responses.

As one (of three counting Ina & Matt) who has already "recalculated" -- you are preaching to the choir, my friend. It will work out for you, as it has for us!

Praying for you and the family!

I also thought my course was set but when God recalculated it and I followed, it brought me into something much bigger than I could have even thought or imagined. Don't know you or Elaine well but you have been in my heart and prayers.

Myra-
Thanks for the comment. Yes, the routes God takes us on are many times unknown, but the destination is always better than we imagined. Keep doing what you do, and following the great "GPS'!
