It’s Not an Easy Road

Father, it’s a new day and a new year! As many have said, once again we have a clean slate with which to work. Our calendars are one thing but life with You and because of Your “great love we are not consumed” for Your “compassions never fail. They are new every morning…” Lamentations 3:22-23

May I be mindful of Your love – may it be a driving motivator for me every day.

2 Timothy 4:6-8 (<<click here)

On this day it is easy to think of looking back and looking forward. I have made good headway in my relationship with You, though it has not been without its bumps and potholes – many of my own making. I would pray, Lord, that I would be more attentive to Your guidance and more diligent in my following of You.

I am very aware that “It’s not an easy road we are traveling to heaven, for many are the thorns on the way; It’s not an easy road, but the Savior is with us, His presence gives us joy every day.” (It’s Not An Easy Road by J. W. Peterson)

Lord, help me to spread that joy that you so freely give. Help me to live my life to the fullest – in You! So that I, too, might wear the victors crown!
