Disoriented in the Dark

Posted in Religion & Spirituality: Christianity by joeprainito on November 12th, 2008

Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night disoriented, unsure of where you are, and in some cases unsure of who you are. The other night I found my self waking up in a panic around 3:00 in the morning. The room was dark, but that didn’t stop me from getting up, and frantically looking throughout my home for my baby whom I thought was lost somewhere in the house. I had to look at the Clock and convince myself that it was late and the baby was asleep, but while lurking through the halls of my dark house my foot caught the corner of the couch and OUCH!!!  Jeez, first I'm disoriented, and then in pain, this night is turning out just great. Finally I turned on the light, and realized, the toys had been put away, the house was quiet, and my family was safely asleep.

you know, there are times when we're lurking around in life with feelings of disorientation, unsure of where we are, who we are, and even where we're going. And just when we think we've got it all figured out, life throws us some blows knocking us to the ground, which leaves us wondering...Why? Listen we need to stop assuming that we've got it all figured out, and allow the light of Jesus to shine on our life.

Proverbs 3:5 says:   Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

So listen if you've found yourself to be disoriented in life, rely on the Lord, allow Him to direct your steps, and not only will you avoid a nasty fall, but God will lead you blessing on earth, and ultimately to an eternal life.
