Path vs Destination

God has plans for each of us…
but He never promises that it will be easy. He leads us down a path… as we walk toward our destination. But obstacles will be there along the way to teach us and prepare us for the calling that He has for our lives. We just have to trust Him to help us get to the “destination” that He has planned for us.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11


Matthew 5:43-48


You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.

If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends,how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that.

But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:43-48


At the Crossroads: Joshua 24:15

We are at a crossroads…

from which we must choose.

For the decision that we make…

will cause us to win or lose.

Will we serve other “gods”…

and make our own path…

to be like Sodom and Gomorrah…

with the punishment of wrath.

For the sins that we commit…

are like holding Satan’s hand…

instead of siding with God and His laws…

which many do not understand.

For God’s laws are not democratic…

to which we vote to uphold.

They are written in stone…

where His instructions were first told.

And God is the same…

 yesterday, today, and tomorrow!

But those who choose the wrong direction…

will take a path leading to sorrow.

For many years ago…

His standards were firmly set.

And like many before us…

disobedience we will regret.



Shouting for Joy

Joy for Every Day - Christian Journal

Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
Sing the glory of his name;
    make his praise glorious.
Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
    So great is your power
    that your enemies cringe before you.
All the earth bows down to you;
    they sing praise to you,
    they sing the praises of your name.” Psalm 66:1-4
