Walk Straight


I would say that on average I pray the same prayer every day. I pray some variation of “Lord help me to walk in your ways and not stray to the left or to the right.” I want to be clear that I do not pray this prayer because I am so great but because I am aware of my own frailty. I know that left to my own devices I will stray to the left and the right. I know that when it is up to me I will go astray. I know me.

I also know that God desires to lead me. He desires to guide me. He desires to have me follow. Most of the time God and I are on the same page; we both know I am weak. I say most of the time because there are times when I try and blaze my own trail and when that happens I come back and pray my prayer again but with more determination.

I don’t really have much to say about this because I know I am not alone. I know I am not the only one who knows what is in them. Chances are if you are reading this then you know just as I do that we are prone to wonder. My advice is to admit that and ask for Him to guide you because He wants to. Jesus says “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me.” 


Just a thought,
