As I sit here listening to the wind batter my house and watch the wind toss things around my yard, I realize that I've been similarly allowing things to blow me around. Just like this pool, I've allowed "things" to turn my life upside down by trying to deal with things all by myself. How silly of me.
Here I come, Lord, once again, asking forgiveness for my stubborn willfulness. I need You to lay Your hand on my life, guide, protect and comfort me. Show me the path you'd have me take, because I know it is a perfect path. It know that it isn't a trouble-free path. There will be trials and tribulations along the way, You told me that in Your Word. But I know that it will be a perfect path to continue drawing me closer to You. Amen.
