The Message Bible often has interesting ways of putting things- I like this passage from the Message. Read it in your own version and compare the two! Today’s focus: God has charted the road you take.
How well God must like you- you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon, you don’t slink along Dead-End Road, you don’t go to Smart-Mouth college. Instead you thrill to, you chew on day and night. You’re a tree replanted in Eden, bearing fresh fruit every month, never dropping a leaf, always in blossom. You’re not at all like the wicked, who are mrer windblown dust- without defense in court, unfit company for innocent people. God charts the road you take. The road they take is Skid Row.
Dear heavenly Father- Thank you today for showing your like/love for those who follow you and what you desire for them. Bless each of us ladies today, Lord. Our hearts are in the right place, even if we do mess up time and time again. Thank you for charting our path for us so that we need not worry. Help us to not worry about that same exact path but to have faith that you’ve got it handled ahead of us. Thank you Jesus! -amen
