Stay the course!

Psalm 119:33-40 "God, teach me lessons for living
      so I can stay the course.
   Give me insight so I can do what you tell me—
      my whole life one long, obedient response.
   Guide me down the road of your commandments;
      I love traveling this freeway!
   Give me a bent for your words of wisdom,
      and not for piling up loot.
   Divert my eyes from toys and trinkets,
      invigorate me on the pilgrim way.
   Affirm your promises to me—
      promises made to all who fear you.
   Deflect the harsh words of my critics—
      but what you say is always so good.
   See how hungry I am for your counsel;
      preserve my life through your righteous ways!"  The Message

Teach me...Give me....Guide me...Give me...Divert my eyes...Affirm your promises to me...Deflect my critics...See how hungry I am for your counsel Lord.  I want to be all that you want me to be.  Help me to be who you want me to be.  I want to stay the course....the path that you have laid out for me. Even when that path is bumpy, rocky and just down right hard!  

So thankful that my daddy has big arms to carry me down the path at times.

What about you?  Is he there for you?  Are you letting him carry you down that bumpy path?  He's waiting for you to ask him to help carry you.  Don't put it off!  You will be amazed how easier that bumpy path can get if you just TRUST HIM to carry you down the path.

Still wanting to stay the course,
