In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:6 NRSV

Thought

If you acknowledge with praise, prayer, and thanksgiving that God alone is in charge of your life, God’s promise is to show you the way back into life. God straightens the path as you journey upward out of the valley of the shadow of death, away from grief. Though grief is not a straight-line experience, pause today to appreciate the straightaway. Find rest for your soul.

Prayer

God, I give you thanks today that the path through grief is becoming more expansive with each new day. May I rest today in your vision for my path. Amen.

Assurance

God is at work to make my path straight.
