“When you feel far away from God, begin to praise Him.  You will find Him in the midst of your worship.” – Jerry Leachman, former Team Pastor, Washington Redskins

Lord this morning I felt far away from you.  I was tired.  I had a long week at work.  I did not feel like praying this morning before I left for my soccer game.  But I did. I held on to you God.  Not because I felt it – but because my love for your is fact. So as I drove to the field and saw the early morning mist lying low on the stadium turf, the sun climbed up behind the fire-coloured fall trees. I felt a tear in the corner of my eye as I took in the beauty of the moment…and I thanked you.  As I left my car, I saw a child walking his dog along the road. It made me think of my own sons.  I smiled.

After the exhausting game (we lost and my knees hurt), the warm fall day exploded.  I put the top down, cranked the tunes and heard an amazing praise song.  I have heard it a million times before…but today it took special significance because the song lead me to the cross.  Again and again.

Thank you Lord for holding on to me, even when I don’t feel like holding on to you.  Have a nice day, Father.  Thanks for the sweet morning afterall.   I know YOU love me, whether I feel like loving or not.  Amen and amen.

About setyourpathsstraight

It is my desire to serve God and others through writing; by proclaiming His goodness, provision and character in story form. Though I was not always a follower of Jesus Christ, I have experienced life changes that can only be a result of personally meeting Him. He is not a God of religion, but of relationship. I don't have the answers to life's challenges, but I know where to find them...only in God's Word can any of us stop following crooked paths. The month of my spiritual birthday, I read Proverbs 3:5-6 and claimed it as my life verse... "Trust in the Lord in all you do, lean not on your own understanding In all your ways acknowledge Him.... and He will Set Your Paths Straight." Thank you for your visit today. Please come back again.
