The Road to Destruction

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end, it leads to death.” Proverbs 16:25.

What seems right and what is right are often two totally different things.  I find it so hard to determine which path I should take.  I want so much to do what is right.  I too often rely on my judgment to determine which path to take, but I should call on God to help me navigate the path I should take.  The kids used to wear F. R. O. G. bracelets they got from the Christian bookstore.  (In case you can’t remember F. R. O. G. reminds us to Fully Rely On God.)  We should fully rely on God for everything.  He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, after all.  He is the author and creator of everything.  Why wouldn’t we fully rely on Him?  Is it because we think we KNOW better than Him?

Be a  F. R. O. G. today. Walk the path laid before you and fully rely on Him.  Proverbs 3: 5 & 6 says that we should “Trust in the Lord with all our hearts, and lean not on our own understanding, in all our ways we should acknowledge him, and He shall direct our paths.”   Which path will you take today?

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.[1]

What Amuses Me?

Well that’s the question of the day, isn’t it? Today, it’s this picture.

Mainly, because that’s how I feel most days. I never feel like I put my best foot forward. I feel like most days, I’m seriously doing my best to put my clothes on and head out the door. My mascara is most likely running down my face and I may have lipstick on my teeth or worse on top of my lips because I’ve been drinking my morning coffee.

Let’s be real for a minute, mornings are tough! I thank the Lord above because He promises to give strength to the weary. Isaiah 40:29-31 “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Hello, this says even the young grow tired and weary! I am far from young; no wonder I’m tired! Today, I will find my strength in the Lord. Today very well be the day I rise up on wings like eagles! I’m ready Lord, raise me up!

Have a blessed day!
