Stay On Course
We should always allow The Lord to be our guide. We may not always understand where The Lord is leading us, and that misunderstanding can steer us off course, and then we begin to follow our own path or the path others. It is when we go off course that we discover that we hit potholes and hurdles, and we do not know how to navigate them on our own. It does not matter which way The Lord leads us we should always follow the direction and the path He has for our lives, even when it is difficult. The Scripture reminds us that, we should observe and do all the commandments The Lord has for us, and do not turn from them not to the right or to the left. I encourage you today to continue to follow the path The Lord has laid out in front of you, even when it looks difficult. The Lord knows the way He is taking you, and you should have enough faith in Him to know that He would never lead you to a place where He is not prepared to keep and protect you. Life can become difficult, but do not let what you see keep you from doing what The Lord is calling on you to do. Listen to The Lord and do not turn from what He is saying to you, and the direction that He is leading you, and trust Him to lead you safely to your destiny. There will be things that pop up on this journey, but I will not worry about them because I know The Lord is with me and He is leading me to my destiny. Since I will not deviate from the direction that The Lord is leading me, I know for sure, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord as I navigate the road of life, help me to stay on the course and the path that you have designed for me. Help me not to allow the distractions to steal my focus. Thank you Lord of loving me. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
