Morning Motivation-God Directs Our Path

“I trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge Him and He directs my paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

I love to travel.  I enjoy the adventure.  I delight in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, the trails in the mountains, and feeling the cool breeze during a bike ride on the beach.  I have a seven-year-old grandson, and we like to go on adventures.  We have been to museums, the zoo, the park, the ocean and there are many other excursions that I am planning.  My dog Brodie and I love to go on walking adventures together.

It would be exciting if all of life’s journeys would take us to exotic beaches, towering snowcapped mountains, and beautiful cathedrals.  Wouldn’t that be great?  Yes, we can make some of these things happen, and I hope to. But, sometimes life’s journeys are less than joyous.  Many life events cause significant pain and are devastating.   In these times we call out to God.

Lord, please wrap your arms around us.  Give us your peace, joy, and comfort no matter where we find ourselves.  Please direct our path and help us to trust your direction.

Help us to praise you on this amazing adventure we call life.

I love you Lord and look forward to our travels together.

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
