December 18, 2021: He Will Direct Your Path
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” (Prov. 3:5–6, KJV).
Many times throughout my life, I have followed these passages, and the Lord has led me in the right path.
Several years ago, I lived in a mobile home that, unbeknownst to me, was affecting my health. I had been dealing with pneumonia for several months. One day, I saw an ad for an apartment and prayed for the Lord’s leading. I was able to sell my mobile home, and I moved into the apartment. I have not had pneumonia since!
In this community, I have made a lot of friends and have been able to help many of the elderly residents. I have even been called an “angel.” All credit goes to the Lord for giving me the strength to do all I can.
Lord, please be with each of us in these difficult times, and let us remember that You are still in control. Amen.
