Living in the New York has its variations of climate. Yesterday is snowed. It was not a lot but enough to cause trouble. The snow lingered after I got home. I watched it safely from my warm living room.
This morning when I got up I noticed that the sidewalk outside my home was nice and clear.
The path did not finish there, it lead right to the door of my dirty salt-covered vehicle.
My husband is so good to me.
He knows that the slightest slip could cause me to fall and get injured. My body has been ravished with Rheumatoid Arthritis and its a dainty walk for me in inclement weather.
Well, praise God I arrived to the door of my vehicle safely.
I could have chosen to arrive to my car a different way. But, I would have missed the level,
As always my mind raced to the Scriptures I have buried in my heart.
"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way." (Psalm 37:23)
Yes, God has ordered my path. Just like the snow that was shoveled away, the path that the Lord has for me is clearly marked; undoubtedly noted; Light leading the way.
"I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name." (Revelation 3:8)
The Lord makes a way, opens doors and commands me to walk on the straight and narrow.
With all that preparation, I'm embarrassed to say that sometimes I still miss Him. Thank you Lord that you are not finished with me. You continue to instruct my heart and sharpen my hearing. Holy Spirit I am your student; continue to train me. I belong to you.
As I arrived to my car I also noticed that with much ease I could open the driver's door. This good man that the Lord has allowed me to share this life with not only cleared the way for me but he made sure that my door was not frozen shut. With his strong arms he opened the door and secured it for me to open with effortlessness as I began my morning commute.
Thank you Lord. My husband looks more and more like you every day.
I too will reflect your image. Shine your presence over me until I reflect only you.
