A quiet walk with Him

Imagine taking a walk with God down either one of these paths... the quiet companionship, the conversations you are sure to have, the joy in the moment... what's to stop us from allowing these moments to happen anyway? Our pride? Our busyness? Our grief? Lord help us to stop and dwell in your presence daily.

The Perfect Path

The LORD says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Psalm 32:8

I am so aware of my failings in life so much so that I find it hard to see those things I do right. I find myself so concerned about doing it the right way and taking the right path I don't wait for His wisdom and advice. I walk so fast I end up on the edge of His protection. I don't think we are ever out of his protection but I think we can be just on the edge where it can take more time to protect us than if we are walking by His side. It's like our kids when they are just out of arms reach... we have to lunge to keep them from falling off the stepdown they don't see because they are too busy looking ahead at the thing that tempts them and keeps them from walking slowly beside us.

Lord, help me to slow down, to listen for your voice and trust you to show me the best path for my life and those whose lives I'm responsible for.

A begining

I'm not sure how great I'll be at this but I'm going to try. This is going to be about the things God is teaching me. I hope to post something most days but know that some days it just gets away from me.

The reason I chose The Plain Path for my blog title is I know this a battle I face daily... keeping up w/ the Jones'... What He wants from me is to learn contentment, peace in the life he chose for me and trust in a daily walk with Him.

I'll share what he shows me with honesty and trust that you my family will keep me in your prayers and hearts.
