As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

{30 Days of Thankfulness} Day 22


I am thankful for God's assurance that He will direct our paths. 


When we're faced with the unexpected and with decision and dilemmas and forks in the road, it is so easy to be overwhelmed. But then I remember:

~ He has promised never to leave me or forsake me. (Hebrews 13:3)
~ He is with me always. (Matthew 28:20)
~ He will direct my paths, if I have submitted those paths to Him. (Proverbs 3:5.6)

  1. Indeed and amen! It is often asked: How do people live without Him? And the good news is that no one has to. He is eager to be invited in to every life.

    (Hope that you are speaking generally here and not specifically. As is my usual habit when visiting, saying a prayer for you and yours.)
