Along His path

“According to the greatness of your goodness and your many mercies, look down on me and hear the prayer of your poor spirit, exiled far off in the land of the shadow of death. Protect and keep the soul of your servant, traveling amid the many dangers of life.

By your grace, direct him along the path of peace until he is back home in the land of everlasting brightness. Amen.”  Thomas รก Kempis

Let the past rest

A New Year, a new month, a new day.  The past does not need to restrain or restrict us when we are willing to begin anew with Christ, who never leaves us.  Oswald Chambers, in his writing for December 31 from “My Utmost for His Highest,” states how we can let our past rest and our future, ever recreated afresh, begin:
“As we go forth into the coming year, let it not be in the haste of impetuous, forgetful delight, nor with the quickness of impulsive thoughtlessness. But let us go out with the patient power of knowing that the God of Israel will go before us. Our yesterdays hold broken and irreversible things for us. It is true that we have lost opportunities that will never return, but God can transform this destructive anxiety into a constructive thoughtfulness for the future. Let the past rest, but let it rest in the sweet embrace of Christ.
Leave the broken, irreversible past in His hands, and step out into the invincible future with Him.”
