My Guide Through This Unknown (Foggy) Country

Riley: "Mommy, your Bible doesn't have any pictures!"

Wikipedia: "Guide: A person who leads anyone through unknown or unmapped country."

Websters: "Guide: One that leads or directs another's way."

"The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." Isaiah 58:11

"For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever, and he will guide us until we die." Psalm 48:14

"Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies-- make straight your way before me." Psalm 5:8

"Though the Lord gave you adversity for food and suffering for drink he will still be with you to teach you. You will see your teacher with your own eyes. Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say 'This is the way you should go,' whether to the right or to the left." Isaiah 30:20-21 (NLT)

"Teach me how to live, O LORD. Lead me along the right path, for my enemies are waiting for me." Psalm 27:11 (NLT)

"Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long." Psalm 25: 4-5

Wow. I needed this. Thank you.
Isn't it comforting to know that our Guide created all...so we are never lost?

Sweetie, you are tapping a very deep well indeed! Some of humankind's most profound expressions of a spiritual sense of guidance come from this ancient Hebrew poetry. It is quite amazing how the voices here have somehow resonated with so many generations through the millennia. It seems a testimony to sincere hearts, beginning with those of the ancient poets themselves, who found that glimpse of light--clearly--through heavy darkness.

Love and another big hug!
