The Lord Directs Our Path

The Lord will work out His plans for my life - for Your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Ps. 138:8

All the days planned for me were written in Your book before I was one day old. Ps. 139:16

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Ps. 32:8

Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul. Ps. 143:8

Lord, do you indeed know my path? Do you really have plans for my life? Sometimes it seems lifes troubles are too hard for me to even see a plan. Even in a time of contentment, my path is not always clear. I do not know the future. I do not know what decisions or heartaches lie ahead. I do not know, but You do. You have guided me this far, nothing keeps You from guiding me the rest of the way. I pray that I will always trust You. Even when the path leads to suffering, let me trust You. Even when the path leads to pain, let me trust You. For you are the one constant and I am only safe inside of Your will. Keep my soul, my life, my heart (not from pain) but from straying from You. Amen.
