Every time I get in my car and travel to an unknown location, I do one simple thing to get there. I plug the address into my GPS. The GPS determines my location, my destination, the amount of time to get there, and the route. Once this is all calculated, I simply click ‘start’ and I am on my way. I put the GPS in the holder of my car and drive. Almost every time, I get to the exact location that I was desiring and the navigation system even got me there with the quickest path.

You see, it’s amazing that I completely trust my GPS to get me from point A to B, yet at times we doubt God’s ability to guide us. We should all be entering prayer each morning asking God to navigate our days because He knows exactly where our heart is at, where it should be going, and how to achieve His desires for us. He will even get us there in the most beautiful way because He promises that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. It is our task to come to Him daily with the desire to say ‘yes,’ and then ask Him to speak and become our Divine Navigator. Say ‘yes’ and hear His voice!

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
