He Is the Way


This morning I noticed an interesting play of light in the wooded area east of our house, and took the photo above. I had been out of sorts, to put it mildly, and had been tromping around the yard flinging childish accusations and hurts toward the Lord. As I headed back to the house, the phrase "You know the way to where I am" came to mind.

I came inside and looked up the Scripture the Lord had brought to mind: "You know the way to the place where I am going....I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:4, 6).

Only later, as I clicked through my phone photos, did I see that there appears to be a cross smack dab in the middle of the photo I had taken.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. We can always find a clear path to Him through praise, prayer, and Scripture. Praise His Name!

Pray Adequately But Don't Worry Needlessly


My prayers were focused on my children and grandchildren this morning, but this meme can just as easily be a caregiver's prayer. When we are emotionally involved with the hearts and minds of those for whom we pray, it is hard not to give way to worry!
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" Philippians 4:6-7.
