BC: In Appreciation from the Fellowship Haven Congregation
FC: They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, They shall mount up with wings as eagles.
1: One Day A follower of the Lord knelt before His Father in Heaven. With a prayer on his lips, and faith in His heart, he gazed into His Father's eyes. He noticed that the Lord's eyes were clear and brilliant and sharply focused. The follower turned in the direction that the Lord's eyes were focused. Looking out he saw a pathway. The pathway was only visible for a few hundred yards and faded from view behind a small hill. The follower also noticed other pathways close by. Each of the other pathways were only visible for a short distance as they turned either to the right or left. It was at this time that the Lord spoke to the follower. " The pathway that you see my eyes focused upon, is the pathway that I have chosen for you to follow. Walk upon it with confidence, trust, and courage. It is a prepared pathway and will perfectly lead you into the plans I have for your life. If you ever wonder where the pathway is taking you, simply look down and you will notice my footsteps ahead of you and behind you. As you walk you will notice other pathways close to yours. Some pathways may get your attention, and draw your interest and curiosity. They are the pathways that I have chosen for others. You may be attracted to these other pathways because of the flowers that border them, the trees that shade them, or the direction in which they are heading. What you don't see is the depth of the valleys and the steepness of the mountains through which these pathways wind. Those whom I have called to travel these other pathways will have my grace for the journey. It is my perfect plan for them. I do not want you to waste your time imagining what it might be like traveling down someone else's pathway. If you did travel one of them you would not have my grace upon you, and the valleys and hills would be a burden to you and create a weariness within you. The time and energy I give you will always be enough for each day's travel. and you will find my resting places along the way. Give yourself completely to the pathway upon which my eyes are focused. As you do, continue to look upon my face, for my smile will be upon you. I know where the pathway is taking you. I have already traveled it, and believe me when I say that you could never imagine the incredible things that await you. " Thou wilt show me the path of life: in Thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11

5: At times life's path seems filled with things that make the going rough, And you wish there were on a smoother road, for we feel we've had enough. But, if we pause a moment and remember Who's in charge. The hills that loom ahead of us no longer seem so large. And every rock before us, when we know we're not alone, Becomes not just a stumbling block, but one more stepping stone. Emily Matthews | Wishing you God's Blessings. Thank you, Elmer Ropp
