My thirteen-year-old dog, Rocky, has been part of our lives for more than a decade. He sleeps most nights in his 'pet taxi' and can be found enjoying a nap in it more than several times a day.

Whenever Rocky is going to go with me somewhere overnight, I pick up the 'taxi' and start my trek toward the kitchen door. He jumps off his current perk. Gets excited and heads for the door. He runs down the sidewalk ahead of me toward our waiting vehicle.

Where is he going? He doesn't know. He just knows he is going with me! Because of the length of our relationship, he trusts me!

As I watched him, a number of days ago, I wondered if I trust God as much. Because of my longer-term relationship with Him, do I get excited about the next 'trip; that I might be taken on....even when I don't know where we are going? Together?

The Bible says in Proverbs 3:5b & 6:  "Trust the Lord completely; don't ever trust yourself. In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success."

Dear God,
I am supposed to be smarter than Rocky.
Help me to trust You completely,
the next time I am taken on a journey.
And I am not sure where we are going.
Help me to be as excited as Rocky is.
You have taken me on unknown journeys before and they have been more successful
than I could have ever dreamed.
This one will be, too! 
In Jesus' Name.
