It’s a quiet, Saturday morning in my corner of the world. The sound of a distant train horn and its rumble down the tracks seems to fit the cooler temperature. The birds are chirping near my window. A creature is clawing and scratching as it calculates the safest path to preservation beyond the edge of our house.
In my morning quiet time, the focus characters were Caleb and Joshua. Ordinary men who decided to take the adventure with God. How’s your adventure going with God?
Matthew 7:14 says,
“But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Psalm 139:5 says,
“You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.”
It seems to me the Lord is the Provider of a safe path in life. Our nature, however, doesn’t like to be led along as a gentle Shepherd would lead. We want to gallop the hills unbridled and call that freedom. That is until we get an injury or fall down. Then we might consider being led as only the gentle Shepherd could lead us, was willing to lead us,
from the beginning.

Dear Jesus, because I follow you, I have an enemy who tries to deceive me. He wants to steal the abundant life you have planned for me. Sometimes he does, and I fall for the lie of whatever I believe freedom to be. It would be better if I would walk with you under your protection. Help me Jesus to want to walk with you in freedom. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

That was such a sweet, succinct description of our freedom in Christ. Why settle for crumbs when we can feast with our Lord.
One of my favorite blogs you have written.

Thank you, Carol!
Well done! I especially like the statement “take the narrow paths so we can sense His presence around us and feel safe”. That is freedom to me, from fear, worry, anxiety. A place to find an abundant, flourishing life! 😊❤️
Thank you for reading, Karen. I know it! I thrive on sensing God’s presence.
