The Daily Path
You are on the path. Do you have a clear destination? Can you sense the finish line?
So often we don’t recognize that the path we are on today does lead to a destination. Each day presents opportunities and challenges.
There are many possible paths to travel between your getting up in the morning and you lying down at night. Staying alert to the many choice-decision mind points along the way determines not only direction, but impact.
Awareness of what is transpiring in the mind is everything.
What is your attitude when “walking during the day?”Is it dreadful, fearful, angered? Or pleasant, determined and cheerful? These are the choice-decisions we need to be alerted to continually.
Wouldn’t it be useful to have a compass or map to guide you along the path? What if you had someone with you at all times who would point you correctly as to the best way to get to the end?
Perhaps not the easiest, rather the best path for you.
If you establish a close relationship with the Higher Source (God) and ask, but as importantly, pause to earnestly listen to the instructions, you would find at the end of the day that you have moved closer and confidently closer to the end destination.
Remember how and what you ask is more important as where and why.
Words have power, energy and force to move you to action. Words create emotion which is energy.
I’m reminded of a story of a man who wanted to climb this high mountain path and as he began was so enthusiastic and full of energy.
After about 3 hours his body ached, his spirits had subsided and he met the choice-decision alert in the mind. “I’ve gone long enough, I’ll never make it!”
Suddenly, in the near distance a tall, older gentleman with a long wooden stick was matriculating himself down the path. As they passed, the older man said: “What a view from the top today, you’re almost there.”
This (news) information ignited a spark of zeal into the weary traveler to confidently march forward and press ahead.
Our words or someone else’s words can lift or stop you. Yet there is one word which is all, find it now.
We are often so close to the dreams and aspirations we desire. Usually, it’s a lack of encouragement, recognition or reflection of how far we have come to get to today. We forget how close the destination is because we don’t measure our faith in action(s).
Walking in harmony with God (Source-Imagination) and developing that partnership of communication consistently gives us that confidence, determination and peace of mind we all require for nourishment.
The path is farther or shorter in relation to the effort put forth. One way is to moan and grown, stumbling along with shuffling feet. This will get you to the end of the day eventually, but there is a better way.
You can choose to walk with Him along the path of Peace, leaning on Him as much as you need.
There will still be difficulties along the way, but you can face them resiliently in His strength.
Thank Him for each problem you encounter, and watch to see how He transforms trials into blessings.
Your faith without works is dead.
