The Bend in the Road

I just want to share with all of you a reminder that God is always with us and gives us the encouragement that we need to keep walking in faith. You see, I posted just this picture that I found with the poem by Helen Steiner Rice last night with Jeremiah 29:11, a verse that I have to hold onto every day. Then this morning, October 6, as I read my devotional, “Jesus Calling”, these words just jumped out at me…

“Be willing to follow wherever I lead. Follow me wholeheartedly with glad anticipation quickening your pace. Follow though you don’t know what is ahead. I know and that is enough. Some of My richest blessings are just around the bend: out of sight but nevertheless, very real. To receive these gifts, you must walk by faith, not by sight…”

So I add these words to my posting to give the Glory to God and a reminder to all to trust God as He leads. We never know what He has planned just “around the bend.”

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I really enjoyed that poem and am reminded that God in his great wisdom knows the bigger picture of our lives and knows what is best.

  2. I love this, my daughter is a runner and her life is changing dramatically right now. I would love to send her this poem WITH the picture, but can’t seem to send it, is it possible to send it via email? When I click on ” Pin it” , it is not transferred to my board on Pinterest
