The Royal Diary

  Its so hard to do the right thing sometimes. The path is long and lonely and filled with many obsticles. There are companions along the way ... some travel for only short distances while others are on the same journey. How do we know who to follow and who to trust? This is a question I have been thinking about for a while now... my heart is often heavy with worry for my friends and loved ones. I know that God will take care of everything as he lights the path, guides our feet and carry us when we cannot walk any further. I am reminded about the story that says that there were two sets of footprints in the sand... one was mine and one was God's and they traveled together and thus I knew that God was there. Then along some points in the path one set of footprints disappeared and I realized that those were during the most difficult portions of my journey. I was upset and thought to myself, "why did God leave me when I needed him the most?" But the voice of the Lord God spoke to me and said that he had no left me. There was only one set of footprints there and those were God's; he carried me through the hard times and yet I had questioned where he was.

So again I think that God is carrying me through hard times. Finals are almost upon us and the school year is coming to a close. The weather is wonderful and studying / concentrating is difficult. I know he will give me the patience and concentration needed to get through this time. I trust that he is always be me and speaks to me... I pray that he will forgive me of my sins, soften my heart and allow me to continue to walk in his ways. I also pray for forgiveness for my friends, those who know him and also those who do not. That God will reveal himself to them and that I can be a witness along their journies. Psalm 19 speaks true... read it and know that thy Lord God is here among us.

More to come...
