A closer walk with our beloved friend.

And He Shall Direct Your Paths.

WE MUST LET GO

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 New King James Version

 

In my walk with the Lord one of the most difficult things to do was to trust in the Lord.

So many times He has called upon me to go places I did not want to go to and to do things I thought He was crazy for asking me to do.

On the flip side of the coin, when reflecting upon it I am so glad that I was an obedient child because there was so much accomplished in this act of obedience.

I think back to when He called me to be a tree planter or when He called me to go serve Him in Asia and thought there was no way I could ever succeed but it was through obedience and faith that we succeeded.

 

Every time I depended upon my own way of thinking it always ended in disaster.

Do you notice the last part of this passage?

He shall direct your paths.

Do not think that Jehovah has only one path for you to follow. There are different times in your life where He will move you from one path to another.

He has directed me on four so far. Each path was preparing me for the next. So while I was serving my Beloved on one path He was teaching me and preparing me to serve Him on the next path He had prepared for me to take.

 

“The point of having an open mind, like having an open mouth, is to close it on something solid.” — G. K. Chesterton

Prayer:  Thank you Jehovah Rohi (The Lord is my Sheppard) for guiding this sheep of Your divine flock on the many paths You have chosen for me to travel in the course of my service to You. Many times it has been difficult to trust You but always rewarding to do so once the journey, no matter how challenging, begun until its completion. I praise You in the name of He who followed Your preordained path all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. This was just so beautiful. Thank you. I needed to hear this today!

    • You are welcome.

      I need a pick me up today.

      I am taking care of an elderly mother who is very difficult because she is extremly stubborn. She insists on doing things she knows she shouldn’t do (or els she gets hurt) and refuses to do things she knows she should be doing.

      Would you please pray for me.

      I am ready to leave this place and if I do she will have to go inot a seniors home.

  2. Reblogged this on Pleasant Places and commented:
    Encouraged to complete my course no matter how hard.

    • Good for you. When I was attending school I found that the courses that did me the most good were the courses that were the most difficult. The wisdom learned in them I still carry thirty years later.
