Recently I spent some time playing around on Google Earth learning more about GPS coordinates.
It was fun punching in something other than my mailing address to learn of my whereabouts.
Then it dawned on me, where am I? No, really, where am I?
No, I’m not suffering from amnesia but do I really no where I am?
No I’m not lost. I know where I’m standing in relation to Google Earth but where am I as a person, husband, father, friend, leader and follower of Jesus?
If I know where I am I have a better chance of knowing where I’m heading.
Growing up a friend use to say, “You can’t get there from here.”
To get to where you are going you have to know where you are. If you don’t know where “you is”, you can’t get there from here!
So often we spend our thoughts thinking about where we are heading when in reality we’re not real sure where we are.
Take some time today and determine your personal geo codes. No, not where you are standing on planet Earth but where you stand on the big issues in life.
Where you are heading is heavily influence by knowing where you are.
So, where are you? Just checking!
