GOD-TRACKING IS FINDING GODíS TRACK OVER THE HILLS OF LIFE
ďAll these trees look the sameÖ and Iím still not sure Iíve taken the right path!Ē I grumbled to myself while I climbed a steep hill in a small nature reserve near my home. Iíd been trudging up the hill for what seemed like hours trying to find the path over the summit and down to the tranquil pool I knew existed on the other side of the hill. This pool is one of my favourite spots to sit and pray, but I usually access it by road. Sure enough I reached the brink of the knoll sweating and panting only to discover that the route Iíd chosen was leading away from my peaceful pool. Eventually after plodding around for a while longer I found the right path and made my way down to my fave spot.
God-tracking is like that. As we negotiate this track we call life we often face many obstacles that we need to climb over in order to discover Godís purposes beyond. When this happens we may be faced with several choices to make in order to arrive on the other side of the obstacle. One thing to be sure of is that each path we find will probably take us to the summit but only the correct one will take us down to the goal the other side. It remains then, that you and I need help to find the correct pathways over lifeís obstacles. You see, in my little sweaty experience on that hillside, if Iíd had a map or GPS device I would have clearly seen my way over the hill and found the path to my goal beyond.
Therefore, we face two options: 1.) go it alone and guess the way to the place of tranquillity or, 2.) follow Godís directions over the hill, even if they seem to take us away from the goal before we finally arrive. The Bible is like our roadmap to Godís purposes and the Holy Spirit is like our GPS satellite navigational system. All tracks may lead up to the summit of lifeís obstacles but only God knows the one he has planned for you; the one that will take you over the hill, down the other side and on to his place of peace. So make your choice today to follow Godís directions over your obstacles.
God-tracking is finding Godís track over the hills of life.

A Sample of Dudleyís Fave Quotes
ďJust as at sea those who are carried away from the direction of the harbour bring themselves back on course by a clear sign, so Scripture may guide those adrift on the sea of life back into the harbour of the divine will.Ē --- Gregory of Nyssa
Donít Give Up, Look Up!
Look up and Fix Your Eyes on Jesus!
I commit my path to you and pray for your way forward
ďO Lord, I have been wondering this hillside for so long trying to find the correct pathway to take me over and down to a place of peace. It seems as though every time I look up I just see more trees and a steeper climb. Lord, I know you have my purposes in mind and that you have planned a way for me out of this mess Iím in but I have spent too much time going it on my own. Iím sorry. Today I make a decision to lift up my eyes and look into your word for direction to the place of your blessing. I call on the Holy Spirit to be my guide and direct me by his gentle nudge so that I may gain victory over this mountain. In faith I will do what you command me to do. Lord, I commit my path to you and pray for your way forward. In Jesusí name. Amen.Ē
