Obedience Requires Walking Where the Way is Unclear
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
Today I want to share some of the famous hymn published in 1779 with words written by Anglican Clergyman John Newton and English Poet, “ Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that sav’d a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see.
Lord, I am starting to realize that no matter what I do, the way will always be unclear. I will never know exactly what tomorrow will bring. I can’t even recall the exact events of yesterday without actually seeing it from my own point of view. I’m sure all who were involved see things their way as well. As I walk down this unclear path I know as I strive for more spiritual enlightenment and not give up I will begin to see the light and walk down the path of righteousness.
Thank you, Lord, for always being there for me even when I did not realize it. There were times when I thought I was my own lord and savior and worshipped many idols. I didn’t think I really needed you. I ask for your forgiveness first and foremost of my sins and shortcomings of thy commandments. I ask Lord that you give me strength, courage, confidence to walk in the unknown, to trust the plan that you have for my life, and to know that you will never lead me astray. I know that you will never leave me or forsake me. With you, by my side, I am never alone. No matter how hards things may get. No matter how scary the situation may be. I thank you for being there for me at my lowest, darkest of times, my breaking point, and even when I don’t want to live anymore. You brought me out of the darkness and into the light. I could not have made it without you, so I give thanks to you Lord on today. I ask that you walk with me into the unknown and unclear path of my future. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen!
