gps

In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. —Proverbs 3:6

Don’t worry. I know right where I’m going,” I said to my passengers. Then an almost-human voice ratted me out: “Rerouting . . . rerouting.” Now everyone knew I was lost!

These days, millions of drivers recognize those words, or others like them, as a sign they’ve gone off track or missed a turn. The GPS device not only recognizes when a driver is off course, but immediately begins plotting a new path to get back on track.

Sometimes followers of Jesus need help to get back on track spiritually. We may intentionally veer off course because we think we know best, or drift away slowly, failing to notice we’re moving further and further from the walk God wants with us.

God has not left us on our own, however. He has given all believers the Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17; 1 Cor. 3:16), who convicts us of our sin (John 16:8,13). When we’re going off course, He sounds the alarm and triggers our conscience (Gal. 5:16-25). We may ignore the warning, but we do so to our own detriment (Isa. 63:10; Gal. 6:8).

What comfort to know that God is at work in our lives through the convicting work of the Holy Spirit! (Rom. 8:26-27). With God’s help and guidance, we can continue on a path that is pleasing to Him. —Randy Kilgore

Holy Spirit, we would hear
Your inner promptings, soft and clear;
And help us know Your still, small voice
So we may make God’s will our choice. —D. DeHaan

We’re never without a helper, because we have the Spirit within.

long trip back to sch today, and then the comp lab closed early cflghflhb oh well i'm only off by a few decimal points anyway

it occured to me that i was talking SO MUCH NONSENSE today zomg. too high/ bored zzzzz

qnnare is fun though, feels like i'm doing something useful. although i missed lots of stuff at first, luckily i was doing it with sy and he did it yest so we were quite efficient! cept some parts of the day were moving soooo slowly

interestingly enough i find some people make me talk more which... i dunno why. which is good in a way since i guess feel comfortable enough to talk to the person = good, as opposed to the invisible professional wall with batchmates u barely know, but bad coz talk sooo much nonsense u know that sliiightly awkward moment when u have to say something plus my verbal diarrhoea on a daily basis. crap.

on the bright side i feel motivated to do certain things for my Goal so yay
