How many of you feel like you’re traveling on a road..

… in the glorious sunshine?

… paved and easy to walk, run, or ride on?

… with joy, laughter, and love?

… that is calm and peaceful?

… that is straight?

… an easy pace down a hill?

If this is the kind of road you’re on right now, take the time to… Thank God.

Take in the sights, sounds, and beauty all around you.  Take the time to treasure that beautiful sunrise or sunset – especially now during the fall season when it is most glorious.  Spend a few extra more seconds in the hug or holding hands.  Say, “I love you,” one more time to your loved one.  Cherish all of these special moments.

Take this time to also support someone who needs a listening ear, a hug, or your hand to hold onto.  Find a way to make someone feel happy, accepted, and loved – even if it is just a phone call, a smile, a card in the mail (something that is rarely done now-a-days), an e-card, or tagging him/her with a great photo or illustration on Facebook.

Embrace God through it all because He will not let you walk alone.

 

How many of you feel like you’re traveling on a road…

… under constant storms?

… with detours, potholes, and dead ends?

… with sadness, tears, and despair?

… that is windy and chaotic?

… full of twists and turns?

… with a strenuous climb up the mountain?

If this is the kind of road you are on right now, remember…You are NOT alone!

Hang on to your faith.  Trust God and know that He is right there with you.  Let Him take your hand and lead the way.  “…for in You alone I put my trust.  Show me the way I should walk.”   ~Psalm 143:8

Keep on going in your hope.  Don’t give up.  No matter how steep your mountain, how treacherous the path is, or how strong the wind is blowing against you – stretch out your hands and let God pull you through.  “Have hope. Be patient in trials and pray constantly.”   ~Romans 12:12

Love one another through the journey.  Don’t turn against him or her and don’t isolate yourself.  You are NOT alone!  Hold your loved one’s hands tightly, vow to one another to hang in there together – no matter how difficult the road becomes – and thank God you have each other every day and night.  “So let’s do it – full of belief. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps His word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love.”   ~Hebrews 10:22, 23

Let God embrace you through it all because He will not let you walk alone!   “Be valiant and strong, do not fear or tremble… for Yahweh, your God is with you; He will not leave you or abandon you.”   ~Deuteronomy 31:6 and Joshua 1:9

Remember…

You will never walk alone
As long as you have faith
Jesus will be right beside you all the way
You may feel you’re far from home
But home is where He is
And He’ll be there down every road
You will never walk alone

Ride On!
