During my time in New York City, many things made an impression on me. I would like to share some of these things over several posts. If you have read any of my posts about my journey to New York, you will already know that I got lost in my travels. That first day travelling around New York was definitely stressful for me. Getting lost was my number one fear in going to New York. I have never been good with directions and getting around in unfamiliar places (my wife can attest to this). So when I got lost, I was beginning to feel quite anxious. The crazy thing was that for most of the time that I was lost I just wandered aimlessly. Instead of asking for help, I figured that if I just kept walking or riding the subway I would eventually get to my destination. I know now that wouldn’t have happened. I HAD to ask for directions. If I continued on in MY way I would probably still be wandering around New York City
Unfortunately, I find myself living my Christian life like this WAY too often. I figure that I can find my way around life on my own. Unfortunately, I end up “lost” and anxious when I do this. It is ONLY when I turn to God for direction and guidance that I make my way to my “destination.” The next time that I find myself “aimlessly wandering” in life trying to find my way on my own, I will remember my New York experience!
