Dear God, show us the road
that you have chosen for us,
and give us the courage
to walk down it... Amen

If you listen...

If you listen...You won't get lost...
Stand at the crossroads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way lies; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.

I wonder how often I ask God for direction but don't stop and listen. Am I just speeding on in life or rushing through the day with just a cursory glance heavenward? I need to study God's word, the Bible, more closely and to take the time to listen receptively to God.

Thank you, heavenly Father, that you always have your eye upon us, always desire to lead us, always want to make your ways known to us. As Jesus taught us, we pray, "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil." Amen.

I am certainly listening. I look outside my window and I can hear our dear Lord and I can see him in the beauty that surrounds me everyday. The leaves blowing in the wind are gentle reminders of how close he is to US.
Hugs to you my friend for your reminders and for sharing his word.
