Don't Overcomplicate Things.


“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” - Matthew 7:7

I used to think that I could figure things out on my own. I guess there are some things I can, but now I know that I don't have to do anything on my own.


I was in Baltimore last weekend, and I was reminded of a time when I was headed to a friend’s birthday dinner there and got lost. This was about 12 years ago when Google Maps wasn’t a thing.

All I had were printed directions to get me to the restaurant for my friend’s celebration. I thought the directions were pretty straightforward, but after about twenty minutes of driving, I realized that I was lost.

I tried to get myself back on course, but I didn’t do a great job. I was still lost. Very lost.
