Without GPS

These days I can’t drive without checking my GPS system. Today was the worst traffic at my hometown that I haven’t experienced in a while. I was supposed to be heading at a direction that I know the route by heart. But it has been a habit for these past year, that I always checked my GPS, to see where is the traffic point and I don’t feel save driving without seeing what’s ahead and knowing the streets condition.

Somehow today I couldn’t, it was bad traffic, some part of the city is having a black out and a lot of the traffic light was down. My internet connection also got affected, I couldn’t check my GPS system at all. I went blind.

I hated the feeling, I was a bit angry because I felt like I have made a bad decision and get myself stuck in a bad traffic. When my GPS finally is on again, I realised all road was blocked by traffic jam.

And its struck me. Today, we are quite attached and super dependant with the technology and the convenience of modern days. Gadgets and technologies keep evolving, giving us the ultimate comfort to live this life. Now, here’s my thought. What if it has become a habit that we adapted to our faith? Just like me today, can’t seem to drive without seeing the road before hand on my GPS. What if I start to treat this life like driving my car. Can not trust Him when I go blind?

2 Corinthians 4:18

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

This is one of those time when I remember this verse. A lot of our decision making sometimes are based on what we know and what is save. We use our logic and assessment to make sure that we are not making bad decision in life. Just like me always checking my GPS before going anywhere. It’s not entirely wrong, but the thing is our Christian life with God is a supernatural one. Most of the times it requires us to make tough choices and continue on a difficult road. Would you trust Him then? How much TRUST would you put in Him, when you can’t see a thing?

It has been a while since I devoted my time to write this journal. Lately I have been busy trying to live life, especially lately my life is not heading on an easy route and to be honest at this moment I feel that I am completely blind with the road that I took. Despite of all this, He is faithful and He still spare me these simple conversation that He puts in my heart to convince me that I’m not alone. I am grateful for that.

This is a reminder for me to keep writing on this journal, it doesn’t matter how many people read this. I will blindly follow my faith to keep writing and share this GOOD NEWS with the rest of you readers.
