Recently I was pondering what is God’s path for my life in the midst of all this craziness of life with pandemic, divisions, racial tensions and shortages. What I ended up doing was compiling a list of verses that dealt with His directing me and helping me navigate through this life until I join Him in glory. I will stop writing and let God’s word do the rest of the talking. Pray you are blessed, encouraged and your hope renewed as you read these.
 You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
 He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
 Make me to know your ways, O LORD;
teach me your paths.
 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
my feet have not slipped.
 My steps have held fast to your paths;
 Who is the man who fears the LORD?
Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose.
 Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
 Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
 Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God!
Let your good Spirit lead me
on level ground!
 So you will walk in the way of the good
and keep to the paths of the righteous.
 My son, do not lose sight of these—
keep sound wisdom and discretion,
 and they will be life for your soul
and adornment for your neck.
 Then you will walk on your way securely,
and your foot will not stumble.
 I have taught you the way of wisdom;
I have led you in the paths of uprightness.
 When you walk, your step will not be hampered,
and if you run, you will not stumble.
 Ponder the path of your feet;
then all your ways will be sure.
A man’s steps are from the LORD;
how then can man understand his way?
 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.
 Behold, I am doing a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.
 Thus says the LORD,
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the LORD your God,
who teaches you to profit,
who leads you in the way you should go.
 For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
 You were wearied with the length of your way,
but you did not say, “It is hopeless”;
you found new life for your strength,
and so you were not faint.
 Thus says the LORD:
“Stand by the roads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is; and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
 Let us test and examine our ways,
and return to the LORD!
 Whoever is wise, let him understand these things;
whoever is discerning, let him know them;
for the ways of the LORD are right,
and the upright walk in them,
but transgressors stumble in them.
 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ
1 John 2:5-6
 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him:  whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
