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.”

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.

So true! God knows where you are supposed to be and exactly how to get you there. You may not always like his methods or the paths he places you on, but rest assured, he’s got you! Thanks again Secret Angel (http://secretangelps911.wordpress.com/)
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
