Staying on the Right Path







The believer's life is like a race with a path and a finish line. The end of it is eternity.  Each child of God has a personal route designed by the Lord. The goal is to stay on that path, but it can only be walked best by focusing on Jesus. He walked it first perfectly to show us the way.

Our path is full of obstacles that may trip us up or sidetrack us. Temptations lure us to what we may see as a better way, busyness can lead us down rabbit trails that only exhaust us. Worry and our emotions may take hold of our minds and take us places our Lord doesn't intend for us to go.

Anything that we may put first before our seeking the Lord and His guidance  may send us down the wrong path. Although our family, jobs and other things we are involved in my be necessary, it may distract us from our desire to follow God's path for us. 

Our goal is not to focus on the path but to keep our eyes on our Lord, He is our guide, our light for our path that leads to Him. Inspiration from "In tough" magazine and the Bible


Have a Blessed Sunday!
