“Hold My hand, and walk joyously with Me through this day.

Together we will savor the pleasures…

 

and endure the difficulties it brings.

Be on the lookout for everything I have prepared for you: stunning scenery…

 bracing winds of adventure, cozy nooks for resting when you are weary…

 and much more. I am your Guide as well as your constant Companion.

 I know every step of the journey ahead of you, all the way to heaven.

You don’t have to choose between staying close to Me and staying on course. Since I am the way, staying close to Me is staying on course. As you focus your thoughts on Me, I will guide you carefully along today’s journey.

 Don’t worry about what is around the next bend. Just concentrate on enjoying My Presence and staying in step with Me.” — Sarah Young “Jesus Calling”

P.S. You can tell my brain is on vaca, too. My devotionals are so good this week, it is just easier to post them (hopefully to encourage you, like they are me) than try to write something new myself. And it is always fun to add relaxing pics…

 Like my friend Melissa said, we are here to make memories.
