Show Me the Right Path

Psalms 25:4-5
Show Me the right path, O Lord;
Point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God Who saves me
All day Long I put my hope in You.

Finally my own computer so that I can continue on the journey. I’m glad as it is that He has allowed me to go this far and feel the light literally penetrate as I pray and write and struggle through the process of self sacrifice in order for it to be His glory and not mine.
George and I have considered what this could mean if I follow what God wants me to do. In reality I should just be doing it. I know that just by doing it, my family and I will be blessed beyond what we ever expected. But as I am only human I tend to struggle with just letting go and putting my full trust in God.
So what happens when we do just let go?
I have learned along the way that my way is really never the right way! Yes I may have my “good” intentions, but until I consult with God first I will not know if my “good” intentions are really all that good!
My point is, when I trust God and really let go, through prayer, I am consistently blessed. When I hang on, I only block whatever blessings God has in mind for me.
That seems to make it a bit easier doesn’t it? Knowing that when we trust in the Lord, His blessings come to us directly. When we don’t trust in the Lord, we block it and it takes a detour so to speak until we do let go and become obedient to Christ.
This includes all areas of life. In marriage, parenting, health, finances, even the small things. It says in Eph.6:18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
Always be thinking about what God would have you do in all areas of your life at all times. I know, I know. Easier said than done. But God knows this, that’s why He gave us the Holy Spirit. Ask the Holy Spirit to prompt you whenever there is a situation that needs a decision that must be made, and He will prompt you. But we must ask.
John16:23-24 says:
you will ask the Father directly, and he will grant your request because you use my name. You haven’t done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.
So the next time we have a decision that needs to be made, lets prepare ourselves beforehand.
Let’s pray:
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you that I may come before you with anything that is in my heart. I ask now that the Holy Spirit will prompt me when I need to pray concerning any decisions that may need to be made. I pray that I bring all of my requests to you and help me know which the right ones are. I know You only have good things for me and so I ask now that when I am struggling to kjust let go that You Lord God will remind me, that You only want to enable to do Your will. In all these things I pray in Jesus’ Name, Amen.


  1. Remember how I always wanted to move to hawaii? well, jay said 'lets move to hawaii'. but i know he only said that to give me what i wanted. i immediately sensed that that was not what God actually had in mind for me. so, sadly, i had to decline the offer. the reasons we each had to go were good ones, but were miles apart. amazingly, the reason i thought i wanted to go are not in God's plan either. God showed me that although i might have empathy for certain people, that was not where He wants me to serve Him. ever since i had that second round of chemo, my voice cracks when i sing, so i know it isn't singing. what then? writing is what i enjoy and it brought it back to me.

  3. Sarah, What an awesome God we have. My husband is struggling today. He called to tell me that he is finally willing to "let go and let God" and expressed what a peace he has. I hadn't read your Blog yet this year but God brought me here today! I can't wait to share it with him. It is amazing - and so are you!
