Navigating The Journey

I've been on a journey, with my life's navigation system set toward various destinations. I've traveled the road of "people pleasing" trying to get to acceptance and then detoured onto the inter-church highway of religious busy-ness. Trying to get to peace and contentment most of my life but for some reason my GPS has only gotten me to dark dirt roads of despair. The road has been bumpy, often frustrating and disappointing. You drive and drive and drive only to get further and further from where you really want to be. 
 
I was told to just listen and follow, because the Navigation system of my soul was connected to some cosmic satellite that heard directly from heaven and without that system I would be lost. Always listening for some kind of special word to guide me and hoping I didn't hear it wrong. But I woke up to realize that with that system I was not only lost, but tired as well.
 
Can you relate? I recently realized that my life was spent always trying to get somewhere.
 
Life is a journey and the GPS you use to navigate that journey makes all the difference. If your system is religion, people pleasing, good works or whatever you're trying to do to get where you want to be, the journey is difficult and redundant. But once you are awakened to grace and your system changes to a (GPS) Grace Positioning System, your destination becomes your vehicle. You see, in Christ, we have all arrived. I believe the journey is the length of time it takes for your soul to switch from your own flesh to an awakening to grace and to resting in Christ. 
 
We are all at different parts of this journey, but we are all in it together. We are all living with grace, but not all of us have been awakened to living from it. Out of grace you don't travel to contentment, you live from contentment. Grace is not a destination to be arrived at, but a vehicle from which to navigate the journey we call life.

As a speaker, poet and writer I want the world to know that through the gospel of the new covenant and the grace provided in the finished work of Jesus Christ we are forever loved. In the middle of our everyday lives we can function from a position of rest in Him. God finds you highly compatible!
