1 Corinthians 9:26 A Sense of Direction A woman driving through Oregon over the Cascade Range ran into a snowstorm and became very frightened. Then she peered ahead and saw a snowplow. What luck! She kept as close to the machine as she could while it removed snow from the road. At times the heavy snowfall almost cut off her view, but her faithful guide kept on leading the way. After some time, the plow stopped, and its driver got out and walked over to her car. "Lady, where are you going?" he asked. "I'm on my way to Central Oregon," she replied. "Well, you'll never get there following me! I'm plowing this parking lot!" Do you ever feel like you're moving in circles, running around aimlessly? Who are you following?

In an old Christian song titled "Hornets", the verses recount the stories of Jonah, Moses, and Balaam, and how God got them to say or do what he wanted them to, even though they were unwilling at first. The song gets its title from a verse that explains how hornets can make a person leave a room, not against their will, but willingly. The chorus goes: He does not compel us to go (no, no) He does not compel us to go He does not compel us to go 'gainst our will But he just makes us willing to go.
