All Her Paths are Peace

Here is my busy day post with a couple of quotes I'm thinking about and repeating and repeating in my head.

"Left to our own understanding, we are unintentionally false and unsteady. But through trusting in the Lord with humility, gratitude, and faith, we are blessed and we prosper. If we trust in the Lord and acknowledge Him, not only will He 'direct [our] paths,' but He will also ensure that 'then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble,' (Proverbs 3:23) and that 'her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.' (Proverbs 3:17)"
Rather than focusing on ease and prestige, may we concentrate on eternal considerations as we make life’s daily decisions. I pray that we will be able to replace feelings of self-centeredness, entitlement, and political correctness with an attitude of humility, gratitude, and faith through righteous obedience to God’s commandments. Like Saul on the road to Damascus, may we ask, 'Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?'"

"Remember that mortal life is a brief moment, for we will live eternally. There will be ample—I almost used the word time, but time does not apply here—there will be ample opportunity for all injustices, all inequities to be made right, all loneliness and deprivation compensated, and all worthiness rewarded when we keep the faith."
