You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. Dr. Seuss
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Poem by Helen Steiner Rice: A bend in the road …
we come to life’s crossroads
And we view what we think is the end.
But God has a much wider vision
And He knows it’s only a bend–
The road will go on and get smoother
And after we’ve stopped for a rest,
The path that lies hidden beyond us
Is often the path that is best.
So rest and relax and grow stronger,
Let go and let God share your load
And have faith in a brighter tomorrow.
You’ve just come to
a bend in the road.
Helen Steiner Rice
Let us bring our darkness to the light, rather than pretend it doesn’t exist.
