DEVOTION: The Way, The Truth and the Light

by Beth Bondurant

A very thoughtful person said "we always know the right thing to do" if we stay centered in God's Spirit.

This thought is still making it's way into my heart, mind and spirit.  God's way is perfect.  There is no greater love... no greater power... no greater knowledge... no ..nothing greater.

How can I know God's way when I am so weak... so conditional in my love... so ignorant, prejudice... stubborn and bull headed.

Those who say they live in God should live Godly lives.

So if I live a God centered life... I should always be living God's way.

Thank goodness we do have the scripture that backs up God's forgiveness...grace and mercy since there is no time in the history of our Biblical text that folks seemed to be living God's way.

Knowing God's way is one thing.  Living God's way is another.

We know good and well we should love our enemies... do good to those who harm us... freely forgive those who hurt our heart, mind, body and spirit.

We've heard it said that we must Praise God even in the depths of our despair.

Yes, we are to live unselfishly... being willing to give our clothes ...our food... our possessions away ... and trust God alone for our well being.

We are to carry one another's burdens... listen to the voices of those "crying out".

Thank God for evidence of those who do live the way, the truth and the life.

O God, you know me better than I know myself.  You realize the very things I want to do are the very things I don't get done.  Yes, your Spirit teaches me the way, the truth and the life and NO... I choose to go on my own agenda.  PRAISE GOD!  my redemption is in your hands of unconditional love and grace.  HALLELUJAH... that you will forgive me today and help me start over and whisper your way in my ear.  And when I am deaf... you will open my eyes to the truth.  And when blindness sets in... you will stir my feet to move in the right direction.  And when I am lost... you will carry me in your arms. And when I need it the most... you will lift me up into eternal love and peace.  God was and is and always will be the Way, the Truth and the Life.
