Actually, spiritual travel is somewhat similar. I do have a destination in mine - Heaven, my forever home. But I have no idea what I might encounter along the Way. What God has planned for me on my journey is unknown.
It takes faith to follow a GPS, especially if the directions seem to be oposite of what you might think you should go.
It also takes faith to follow the leading of the Spirit. What I might feel impressed to do, and where I might feel led to go on my journey might not make sense to me; but, if I feel God's leading I would do well to obey.
He sees the big picture - the whole map, if you will. I can only see to the next bend of the road on my horizon.
In the natural, it comes down to whether or not I trust my GPS. Spiritually speaking, it's the same thing, do I trust my Leader, my Guide? Or would I be foolish enough to go my own way?
What would you choose?
Here's a YouTube video of beautiful song that talks about falling God's leading into the great unknown:

The Journey is our way Home. There is nothing more important than making that final destination. Jesus paid my ticket there, but I have to walk it out. In October, I will be observing the things that happen while traveling the Journey and writing a daily post about my observations.
Because I like to stretch myself, I will also do a challenge within a challenge - 31 days of 5 minute free writes. I will take a topic and run with it, writing furiously for 5 minutes, tailoring it to relate to my theme of examining life along the Journey.
