Pause

Faith is a road we walk. It takes us through the wonderful and the terrible times alike. This road has highs and lows and stretches far and wide.

In our darkness, the road can feel lonely; our steps falter, and our hearts and minds slip farther from love and truth.

Have faith, dear one, Jesus has promised that we will not walk that road alone.

Listen

What can I give back to the Lord for all the good things he has done for me? I’ll lift up the cup of salvation. I’ll call on the Lord’s name. I’ll keep the promises I made to the Lord in the presence of all God’s people.

Psalm 116:12-14

Think

We truly have a good, good Lord. Sticking around when the going gets hard is not an easy thing to do. It’s far easier to retreat or to give up and cry. But our Lord has promised to stick by our side, to walk with us through the muck of our lives, and to guide us back to the path.

And what do we promise? To love others as ourselves.

As the going gets tough for people in your life, walk with them. Help them to find the way. Show them the good in the world around them. Help them to open their eyes and recognize Jesus at every turn. Remember that the Lord is good. And above all, remember that you never have to walk the road alone.

Pray

Lord, thank you for never abandoning me. Thank you for listening to the trouble of my heart and for walking beside me. Help me to walk beside those I love in this life. Amen.

Go

Do not fear the road unknown, the twists and turns, and difficult terrain.

Remember the Lord will always meet you where you are.

The journey may be long, and the going may get tough, but it is always easier when you walk the road with a friend.
