The New Route

Today I fly to Seattle and I get to see my husband! Clap, everyone!!  I'm excited, and eager to be on my way. I know where I'm going, and I know what time I'm going, I don't have any questions about the journey. It's all set up.
At home, when my daughter and I run errands and we get in the car she will say "where are we going?" I'll tell her the couple of things we need to do and she says, "okay"!  A couple minutes later I hear, "where are we going?" And, I repeat the process all over again. We do this several times before we get to our destination.   I was thinking about her this morning as I was praying to God asking Him the very same question, "God, where am I going?" I've asked Him this a million times.  Its always the same answer. "Bethany, the path is in front of you, I want you to speak. Stay focused on me, I am leading you, now go!"  I'll say "okay" Then the next day, I'll say "God, where am going?"
This morning, I think God wanted me to see it in black and white, I guess He's getting a little flustered. I can relate, I get flustered with my daughter! He told me to read Joshua 3, I opened it up and right before me I read in verse 4 "You'll see clearly the route to take. You've never been on this road before."
As I look back, I can see that He has clearly led me. The path has been there, and I have taken it. It is reassuring to know that I will see clearly the route to take, and I will know to take it. His Spirit is power, and that power leads me, and that power sanctifies me, and because of that I praise the name of my Jesus with all my heart and soul and mind!
So, Jesus, Say That Again to me today, I will see the route clearly, even though I have not taken it before!
