"For the Lord your GOD is living among you. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs. Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
This is what the Lord says: "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." Jeremiah 6:16 NIV
So many paths ~ So many choices. I have always been one to be on the "fence as they say" when I need to make a choice. They are hard, and I'm never sure which way I want to fall off that fence. Eventually I do make the choice, and lots of times, I have made them without prayer first for guidance. Some have worked out, some I have regrets over, but as I look back, I do realize that even though I didn't ask prior to my choice, God was there helping. So, I wonder how much better the paths that I chose might have been better had I prayerfully asked my heavenly Father. Even so, as the scripture says, he rejoices with us, and he helps us find rest and peace.
He calms our fears
He loves us
He rejoices over us
He delights in us
He promises rest
All promises that work so much better in life if we ask where the good way is, and choose to walk in it.
I have a special request for prayers for my grandson who lost his father in a tragic accident last week-end. My grandson was with his dad when the accident happened so he witnessed everything. They were having fun in the first snow that had accumulated enough for riding with his dad on the snowmobile. Lots to carry for a 12 year old. Thank you.
