In the gospel we hear that the "he[the Holy Spirit] will guide you to all truth". There is only one catch. We have to be willing to be guided, and to be guided along a path that is not of our choosing.

We all like the final destination. We all love the ideas of "God is love" and we are temples of the Holy Spirit, but the idea of allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us along whatever path is best, can be a bit unnerving. We don't get to see the entire route. The best current metaphor may be the GPS without the preferences controls. We can see where we are, a little ways down the road, and when we need to know we get the next turn.

Thy will be done.

Today and each day can I trust God that much.
