grass_maze1-300x199“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV). It would be amazing if we could travel without interruption on this Journey God has placed us on.

But at times, we wander in a opposite direction from what God has designated for us. But our God does not forsake us. Isaiah 42:16 (KJV) tells of His promises to His faithful “I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.

These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” This Journey at times does become a “confusing network of intercommunicating paths” that seems to have no escape route, because as stubborn Children we fill we can move away from our Fathers guidance.

And that is when life becomes very confusing as we begin to experience the mountains and valleys of life with no idea of which direction makes sense. But through it all as His chosen Godvalley-small-300x197 still has his guiding hand on us.

He see’s every valley created by unwise choices that we have made throughout our life. But as long as our focus stays on the Journey Christ tells us “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life,” John 8:12 (KJV)

Since no one has seen the elements above open and the Son of God appear through the clouds of heaven, that tells us the end has not yet come so we must finish the course that Christ has set before us.

But it must be all about God and his will as we die daily. God has made his purpose clear there is work to be done before the bridegroom comes and takes His children home. Yes I know we all lone for a better place as we awake to a world each day where Satan seems to have full control.

But we don’t have time to think about regrets or what life should have been, or could have been, if we just had done it this way. Oh but the love and grace of God. No matter what length of time we have resisted, God’s promises is still sure, they never change “for It is the Lord who goes before you.

He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deu. 31:8 (KJV) And then one day, we will cross that “sea of glass” into the promise land. At that time “We would7_heaven-300x225 have fought life’s final war with pain.”

And then, as death gives way to victory, we will see the light of glory and then all of the promises our faith held on to throughout this life will then be right before us as we enter those pearly gates and all we will be able to say is, it was all worth it!

And because He lives, we will now be able to live throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity, but until that day comes our faith and endurance must never waver as we carry out our “marching orders,” while staying focused as we take God’s message to all those who seek hope.


My Friends, where there is no vision, the people perish…..Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)
