You don't need the little blue dot

The “Paralysis of Analysis” is the error that says you need more information, more information, more information before you act.”Path Paralysis” is the error that says you need to have your whole strategy mapped out before you move.
When driving from one place to another, GPS maps, signs, and even following a friend are all helpful–but not absolutely essential.
Someone had to be the trailblazer for the new trail.
To be a trailblazer, you need only an absolute reference (true north) and a way to figure out where it is, a light, and the ability to record and repeat your path.
(Plus the character to try and retry until you find the right path through.) God’s Word isn’t promised as a map with a blue dot pronouncing “you are here,” and outlining every crook and cranny in the trail.
It promises to be a light to the path.
The essential thing is to figure out the one next step that gets you closer to your destination - and then take it.
For me, that’s writing and publishing the next Outlook in my Top 40 list.
What is it for you?
