Life’s pathways are not always clearly marked. Trails wind into the wilderness and disappear, leaving no end in sight. And often you may wonder which way to go.
As you journey through life, there is One you can trust to be your guide—the One who has already walked the path for you and who walks beside you even now.
In these quiet moments, be still and listen for the One who is calling you home.next >
Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation—if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.
Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God’s sight.
1 Peter 2:2–4next >
It’s a common insult in our culture for someone to be told, “Stop being such a baby.” Infants are weak and helpless, and this is usually not how we want to think of ourselves. It is certainly not what we want others to think of us. We try so hard to project an image of strength and independence.
But we all start in the same place, seeking nourishment that can only be provided by a caregiver. Slowly we grow. Eventually we reach a place where we can also be the one to nourish others.
God calls us to start at the beginning and to embrace our need for what only God offers. From there we can grow in the faith and even provide sustenance for others in need.

Lord, I’m sorry that I try to do it all on my own. Help me to depend more fully on you, so I can grow in the faith to care for others. Amen.next >
Oh, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
"Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" by Elisha A. Hoffman, 1887
