Finding My Path

In the sacred ground of this present moment, I find myself seeking a path, a direction for the remaining years of my life. I want it to have mattered that I walked upon this earth. Has my life made a difference? Rhetorical questions without answers… for now.

Maybe it’s the Lenten season. I desire a closer walk with Him who loves my soul. I want to pour out the oil of my devotion on His feet, wash them with my tears and dry them with my hair… if only I had hair like that woman we have read of so often.

Or maybe just to get close enough to Him to touch the hem of his garment so I could be cured of my infirmity like the woman with the issue of blood. Can you imagine her? This poor woman couldn’t attend the temple and worship because of her “issue.” Mine may not be the same as hers, but I do indeed have an issue. What about you? What is your issue? What is it that keeps you from pure worship?

Lord, deliver us! Prepare us for worship. Keep us from evil that we may not sin against You or the family of believers. Help us to have the eyes of Christ and the stamina to do what You ask. Forgive us for the times we have turned our backs upon those in need.  In Jesus’ name I pray!

Psalm 25:4-6

The Message

4 Show me how you work, God;
School me in your ways.

5 Take me by the hand;
Lead me down the path of truth.
You are my Savior, aren't you?

6 Mark the milestones of your mercy and love, God;
Rebuild the ancient landmarks!
