Paths …

My dog has worn a path in the grass from the patio to a certain place along the fence where she likes to lay and watch what is going on around the lake. She follows the same path every time going out or coming in. I suspect she could do it with her eyes closed; in the middle of the day or deepest dark of the night.

Jesus has given us a path to follow for our life on earth…He gave a guide book, the Bible, to help us follow him to glory.

“He guides the humble, teaching them the way…” Ps 25:9

“You guide with your counsel…” Ps 73:24

“Whether (I) turn to the right or left (my) ears will hear a voice behind (me) saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it.’” Isa 30:21

Jesus will lead in ways not known…

… “Along unfamiliar paths I will guide …I will turn the darkness into light before them and make rough places smooth….” Isa 42:11

He gives me peace  …

“He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside quiet waters.” Ps 23:2

“He will be my guide even to the end…” Ps 48:14

“Afterward you take me into glory…” Ps 73:24  .

Lead me O Lord…teach me your paths today. Guide me in your truth. Show me the directions, read the signs along the paths I walk whether it be light or dark, rough or smooth. Make straight your way before me. I listen for your voice, to ponder the direction I should go. “To you O Lord, I lift my soul. Let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me…Lead me in your truth and teach me for you are the God of my Salvation.” Ps 25:2

    I would like to express gratitude for Tom Behrens post – “Paths”.

    I recently became the Executive Director for Compassion Katy, which is a local non-profit that is on mission to connect and mobilize christians (volunteers from churches across the Greater Katy area) to serve people in need throughout our community and, ultimately, demonstrate the love of Christ to every man, woman and child we meet along the way.

    For the past several months I have been settling in and learning about Compassion Katy’s rich 9 year history, while at the same time, praying earnestly for God to make “His” path clear as Compassion Katy continues to work collectively with ministry and community leaders that are on mission to serve.

    I am ever so grateful for God’s guidance and direction. He faithfully put the right person in my path, at the right time, to introduce me to The Great Southwest Prayer Center and I am filled with gratitude and encouragement. As a result, I am plugged into an incredibly powerful source for prayer. And, God led me to check out the testimonies where I found Tom’s wonderful message. Thank you Tom for sharing!

    My daily prayer – Lead me O Lord…teach me your paths today. Guide me in your truth. Show me the directions, read the signs along the paths I walk whether it be light or dark, rough or smooth. Make straight your way before me. I listen for your voice, to ponder the direction I should go. “To you O Lord, I lift my soul. Let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me…Lead me in your truth and teach me for you are the God of my Salvation.” Ps 25:2

    Blessings,
