The Road I Must Travel

I woke to a beautiful day – sunny, with a high of 56°! I turned on Pandora and the song was “Glorious Day” by Kristian Stanfill. I read my Bible.

I read the chapters again. I read the chapters a third time. There wasn’t one verse that seemed stronger than the others. I thought about reading another chapter in “The Broken Way” by Ann Voskamp. But I already read my chapter for today and copied a page of quotes.

After supper, I read the chapters for the fourth time. God whispered to my heart, “Write down all the verses that speak to you.”

I did but it didn’t make sense. They didn’t seem to relate to each other. I went to bed.

This morning I read a chapter in “The Broken Way” and wrote down more quotes. The last quote could have been one of the verse paraphrased. I read through the other quotes and found they related to the other verses.

“Instead of giving someone a piece of your mind – it’s far better to give them pieces of your heart.” “The Broken Way,” by Ann Voskamp

Psalms 141:3, “Post a guard at my mouth, God, set a watch at the door of my lips.” The Message

* * * * * * *

“He will entice you and woo you. He will say what a lover says to his lady when they walk away from the party into the garden….Wildernesses are not where God takes us to hurt us – but where He speaks to our hearts.” “The Broken Way,” by Ann Voskamp

* * * * * * * *

Psalms 143:8, “If you wake me each morning with the sound of your loving voice, I’ll go to sleep each night trusting you. Point out the road I must travel; I’m all ears, all eyes before you.” The Message

* * * * * * * *

“Sometimes – some things have to break all apart so better things can be built….The best yields always start as broken fields.” “The Broken Way,” by Ann Voskamp

* * * * * * * *

“2 Samuel 23:10, “…but all there was left to do was the cleanup.” The Message

* * * * * * * *

“Sometimes, it helps in the moment to think: people aren’t being difficult – they are having difficulty.” “The Broken Way,” by Ann Voskamp

* * * * * * * *

2 Samuel 24:25, “…God was moved by the prayers and that was the end of the disaster.” The Message

The hardest part of waiting is doing, and saying, nothing.
