My cousin had moved to a different part of the country and I proposed driving over to see her. I thought I knew the way and relied on my own instincts as I went. It wasn’t long before I was completely lost.
Then I remembered I had a map of the area in the car boot. I soon realised where I’d gone wrong and worked out my correct route. Before long I was drinking a very welcome cup of tea with my cousin.
That really is the story of my life. I try to manage on my own and fail. I need to remember God has given me a map to help through life. All I need to do is read his Bible.
