Today is Day 1 of the "write31days" challenge; and I am linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday group for this years' "free writes". Check out all of my posts in this series here.
The word for today is Walk...
Every day I determine to walk the right path; to do the things that I know God wants me to do; to be the person He wants me to be.
It isn't an easy walk; caring for one with dementia - possibly Alzheimer's Disease setting in. It isn't an easy walk for anyone.
And, I know that I don't always walk the right path; don't always do the things that I should; and am not always the person that I should be...
Many days I feel like Paul:
"I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want but I do the very thing I hate. Now if I do what I do not want, I agree that the law is good. But in fact it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me. For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me...
"Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!" (Hebrews 7:15-20, 24-25).
Whatever path I walk, I know that God walks beside me; and if I do wander from the path He has set for me, He will be there to lead me back on the right track.
This journey we are all on is never easy; but as long as we travel with our God, it becomes easier...
Whatever may be in our path.
