The storms of life can be tough, and it is often impossible to see a pathway through our crises; in these times, it is vitally important to cling to Jesus and trust Him to light the path.
Take one step at a time and allow Him to light your path. Hold onto Jesus, pray, and search the scriptures to learn how He led others through their troubles.
Cling to His guidance and resist making quick decisions or blindly following the advice of others.
He is always with you, so keep praying and listening for His guidance even when you can't sense His presence. Allow Him to lead, one step at a time, and He will faithfully provide the best outcome for your crisis.
The rewards of trusting and obeying God one step at a time through the storms of life are depicted in the footprints of the Sand poem, known and loved by many.
"Footprints in the Sand"
One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."
He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."
1. Meet with the Lord regularly in a special place of prayer.
2. Look for Him to speak to you in dreams and visions.
3. Listen for the Word of the Lord.
4. Keep a journal.
5. Watch and wait for God to bring it to pass, It will surely come.
To serve the Living Savior, because He is my King and my God. He is my hope, my Creator, and my future; the One who took my place and died upon the cross because He loved me. I can never repay Him, but perhaps I can show Him, my love.
I will honor and obey His Word to the best of my abilities. I will honor Him by attempting to look like Him in my speech and actions, as commanded, and that, because I love Him.
I will listen for the Holy Spirit and do my best to follow His guidance and promptings. My heart is set, I will never turn back. I will not lower my Christian standards or conduct to make my stance more acceptable to the world.
I will not straddle the fence concerning difficult Christian decisions. His Word will be my guide. I will attempt to do all to win others to Christ, and lead them into the truth, in the solid food of the Word.
Why is it so difficult for our educators and society, in general, to understand that love and respect for one another taught from a young age can solve much of the world's hostility and social problems!
"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov 22:6).
Love is the answer!
True loyalty springs from the heart and is wrapped in love. It is often in our most private moments that true loyalty, or the lack of it, is made known.
