God has placed images all around us to show us how to proceed.
I can look at the ground beneath my feet, the pebbles that trip.
Or I can look at the sea, the sky, the clouds, the blue.
I can look forward in hope of the future, or look longingly backwards toward the past.
I am constantly presented these choices….hope or despair. Trust or fear.
The sea and the sky are calling me onward.
“Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life.”

Planning to do this or that; a list of things to come
Thinking of what could maybe be, or maybe not be
But fixing my eyes firmly on You, my maybes fade away
Into the surety of what is, what will be, what will always be
Love, hope, forgiveness, mercy, healing
My mind quiets and settles at Your feet and in Your care.

Things we can’t imagine
Things we can’t see
But will see past all imagining
And will be amazed…
“The secret things belong to the
Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
~Deuteronomy 29:29 ESV

I love this…the small yellow arrow says one of two things: “Mind your head” or “This is the way”. Of course it might mean something entirely different, but that’s for other minds than mine. It reminds me of the verse in Isaiah that says, “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21) Praying that I will listen to that voice today. Blessings for your day, every step of your way. Lisa
