Watching My Step

31 Days of Order - Day 7

I have found it ironic; this focus on order. One would think that in establishing order to one's life one wouldn't take on the daunting task of adding something else to the already out of control schedule. Hence, the need to think about order. When I am already having trouble keeping up with it all, does it make sense to decide to write every day?

I imagine part of this whole process will include an evaluation of the things that fill up my time. Many of them worthy, some not so much, but it's been awhile since I've run an assessment.

Today I am thinking about pathways. We all have a path and our paths look different. However, the promises of God for our individual paths are true.

You will show me the path of life; 
in Your presence is fullness of joy, 
at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. 
Psalm 16:11 AMP

He refreshes and restores my life (my self); 
He leads me in the paths of righteousness 
[uprightness and right standing with Him—
not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake. Psalm 23:3 AMP

All the paths of the Lord are mercy and steadfast love, 
even truth and faithfulness are they for those 
who keep His covenant and His testimonies. Psalm 25:10 AMP

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. 
Psalm 119:105 AMP
You sift and search out my path and my lying down, 
and You are acquainted with all my ways. 
Psalm 139:3 AMP

Let your eyes look right on [with fixed purpose], 
and let your gaze be straight before you. 
Consider well the path of your feet, 
and let all your ways be established and ordered aright. 
Proverbs 4:25-26 AMP
