Fall is such a lovely time of the year. The air cools and we are beckoned to follow a path of golds and reds.
What does today’s path look like? Probably different than one year ago.
Though the path we are on today may seem to go in directions we wish it would not, we (those who believe in Christ) have the assurance that there is hope, fulness and glory at the end of Life’s path.
I cannot imagine what Heaven will look like though I try. Golden, always light, joy are some of the words that accompany the thoughts of heaven. I also imagine the lovely voices of children in this world.
“I saw the Lord sitting on the throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple… The whole earth is full of His glory.” Isaiah 6:1-3
Though the Lord fills the entire space there will be room for us. How is that possible? I guess we will wait to see.
If you do not have that assurance as one who follows Christ do not be dismayed – Christ offers His loving forgiveness to all who will admit that they are a sinner and that Jesus is in fact the one who can wipe (atone) all sin away. Sound easy? it is. Seeking forgiveness means you must put yourself aside and follow the worthy one – Jesus.
Is He radiating hope into your life today? drink from the living water and never thirst again.
Do you take steps in life that you wish you could re-do? Do you find yourself in unfamiliar settings wondering how you got off course? Life is a journey of uncertainty but we have a master who holds the compass lovingly beckoning us to the next turn of our quest.
If the meek shall inherit the earth, what then will those who terrorize innocent people inherit?
I shudder to think.
I traced the path of a bunny this morning. His concern was for food to sustain him this day. His path in the snow made me smile. Use your life to bring others joy. Man is a beast who evokes fear for his own pleasure or to make a statement. Perhaps he would be better to write an article of angst than to kill and maim.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”
