The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.
As we, God’s children, venture through life, we have to rely on God to help us navigate the path we travel. We have times when it seems easy to follow what God wants for us. Other times we have to obey Him, even when that obedience runs counter to what those around us would have us do.
When we choose to live for God, we live in relationship with Him- in the center of His will. We even deal with daily issues by asking for His guidance.
God leads us through difficult times, teaching us as we progress from one step to another. A friend of mine says she and her husband ‘are on a journey’ as they go through life. Right now, she is dealing with a complication from a surgical procedure from this past July. The newest turn for them may bring her home for a while-until she is ready for more surgery and possibly more rehab, again, away from home. But she knows God is leading them.
Thank you for your leading us through our lives. Thank you for guiding each of us through the tough times. You do this with such grace that we learn to love you more. We thank you for all you do for us. In the name of Jesus, we pray. AMEN
