gratitude: peace

foggy


Fluffy fog, a little sunlight, a road that seems to slowly disappear...

Life is a little like that road in the fog. We know the road is there for us to take, but we can only see a few steps in front of us at any given time. A little frightening at times? You bet. Will the road suddenly veer off to the right? Take a nose dive downhill? Or will we be faced with a gigantic hill to climb?... Maybe it's better that we don't see to much of the road ahead after all.

"Walk peacefully with Me through this day. You are wondering how you will cope with all that is expected of you. You must traverse this day like any other: one step at a time. ...When you don't know what to do, wait while I open the way before you. Trust that I know what I'm doing, and be ready to follow My lead. I will give strength to you, and I will bless you with Peace."

As I drove up the hill into the fog, alone in the car in complete silence, I felt a moment of Peace. I knew that I just had to keep on driving. Just keep moving. Just keep looking ahead, even if the way isn't always clear. Just keep taking one step after another. Just trust that the journey will lead you to just where you were meant to be. And enjoy the moments of Peace along the way.

Oh.....JC was so wonderful today, wasn't it? The more demanding your day, the more help you can expect from Him. "A training opportunity".... We are designed for more dependence on Him. Keep trying to depend more on Him...and I know you are, too.

Thinking of you, friend. xox

Are you doing Jesus Calling, too?! Now I have two friends to discuss it with.
I adore this photo and your words. Somedays I'm very glad to not be able to see too far in front of myself.

This was just what I needed to read this morning! Peace is hard to find, but trusting in Him is the best place to start. I hope you walk peacefully today.
