Bread for the Journey


 You’re blessed when you stay on course,
    walking steadily on the road revealed by God.
You’re blessed when you follow his directions,
    doing your best to find him.
That’s right—you don’t go off on your own;
    you walk straight along the road he set.
You, God, prescribed the right way to live;
    now you expect us to live it.
Oh, that my steps might be steady,
    keeping to the course you set;
Then I’d never have any regrets
    in comparing my life with your counsel.
I thank you for speaking straight from your heart;
    I learn the pattern of your righteous ways.
I’m going to do what you tell me to do;
    don’t ever walk off and leave me.
Psalm 119:1-8 The Message

How exactly do we stay on track and in the center of God's will, when there are so many distractions pulling us in every direction? 
  
I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.  Isaiah 48:17 

Only God can help us to see the possibilities and potential that we have...and the path we should be taking. His words will give us strength when we are feeling down and keep us on the right track.

God will show me the path of life. Psalm 16:11

When we don't know which is the right decision and aren't sure which choice will keep us on course, we need to spend some time with God.  He will show us.  And then it is our choice to stay on the path...or not.

Dear God, today I will choose to follow you.  I trust you completely and know that nothing can separate me from your love.  Lead me as I walk on the path of life.  In Jesus name, Amen.
