" I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, bestowing wealth on those who love me and making their treasuries full.  {Proverbs 8:20}

Where is this path taking you? If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? And who would you take with you? Hum, I didn't mean to get that serious especially this early in the blog! Everyone take a deep breathe, alright, that's better.

Really, do we ask ourselves often enough where we are going in life? Where will this job take me, where will this line of thought bring me in 10 years? Will this make me more like Jesus? What actions can I take to make sure I am healthy, spirit, soul and body? This can be challenging since we don't like to think this far into the future, but God is already there! You might say, where? He is "there" in the future! This is hard for us to wrap our minds around and comprehend because we don't know where "there" is right now.

What comfort it brings me, to know that even as I age, I don't ever have to be concerned because Jesus has it all covered! He is here, with me now, He was with me, in the past, and He will forever be with me in the future! I can be relaxed, knowing that whatever it is He will bring me through, as He has in the past. That doesn't mean it will be easy, but it does mean that I have confidence that is stronger, because of my history with God. You have a history with God too!

Maybe life didn't work out the way you thought it would? Maybe you had more pain than you ever thought, but God was still with you. Why? We want to ask, but we don't know all things on this side of heaven. Press into the comfort and mercy of God, and He will heal, and save us and redeem us from the worst of our past. He can take our worst memories, and make them not sting as much, and we can walk in newness of life, in Christ Jesus!
