I am directionally challenged.
A fact I try to hide but can’t.
When I go somewhere I’ve never been, (and even places I have gone to my whole life) I have to follow directions. In fact I would say that GPS is the greatest invention of our time.
Today I had to take my daughter to a school in Davidson County so she could try out for All District Band. Using the new Google Maps App, I entered the address of where I needed to go and followed the voice that told me where to turn.
But half way through the trip ANOTHER VOICE, form my phone, began to tell me to take a right, or a left at various interchanges on my route.
It confused me a bit, so I looked at the map that was displayed on my phone and stuck to the original map and the original voice I started my journey with and ignored the other voice. It was hard at times to stay the course, I kept wondering if I had missed a turn or if there was a faster way to get to my destination. But every-time I was about to make a change I would look at the map on my phone, and wait for the original voice to speak, confirming the visual map’s info before I made a turn.
I guess you can say “one lady” was leading me down the right path and the “other lady” was tempting me to go somewhere I didn’t want to go.
Only discipline enabled me to stay the course and out of trouble.
I think that sums up Proverbs 5…
I’m sticking with my original lady… and she is more than good enough for me!
