Psalm 25:4-5 The Living Bible
Show me the path where I should go, O Lord; point out the right road for me to walk. Lead me; teach me; for you are the God who gives me salvation. I have no hope except in you.
“Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.” Henry David Thoreau
“Surrender to your path, forget about time or speed, and most importantly walk in joy.” Roxana Jones
“Everyone has their own path. Walk yours with integrity and wish all others peace on their journey. When your paths merge, rejoice for their presence in your life. When the paths are separated, return to the wholeness of yourself, give thanks for the footprints left on your soul, and embrace the time to journey on your own.” Anonymous
Heavenly Father, I look back and wonder why it was necessary for me to wander down particular pathways. Many of my paths were paved with silver and gold and precious jewels. I have been gifted to find these byways and to linger there for a time breathing in peace, filling my cup with joy, and restoring my soul.
Then there were trails traversed cautiously over rocks, roots, fallen logs, and wet, slippery leaves; energy expended exhausted my body, mind, and soul. I emerged battered, sore, and more lost than found.
Sandy barefoot strolls by the sea, salty breezes combing my hair loose and free, and foamy waves chasing after my toes, center my soul; I find You there, Lord, speaking to me through the roar of the waves and the gentle hush of the receding tides.
Every path trodden, I know You, Dear Lord, designed especially for me. Many are the lessons learned along the way. May I be able to share my journeys with others.
If I can ease someone’s burden; if I can help them look ahead to avoid ditches deep and muddy; if I can share my pain helping them know they are not alone; then every step, stumble, or skinned knee will have served its purpose. Bless You, Father, for the opportunities these pathways offer me. Amen
