"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

The Right Path (Word-Filled Wednesday)

Welcome to my contribution to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted this week by the lovely Christy at Critty Joy. Be sure to stop by her blog for more visual inspiration from Scripture.

Go stand at the crossroads and look around. Ask for directions to the old road, the tried-and-true road. Then take it. Discover the right route for your souls. Jeremiah 6:16

People today are always looking for what is new and different. They want to find their own way. The old ways are outdated and boring. They want to blaze a new trail.

But that isn't always the best way. In fact, it often isn't. When it comes to following the Lord, the only route that will "work" is the one he laid out for us since the beginning of time.

So, if you want to continue to walk in fellowship with God, find the path, well-worn by the saints ahead of you. Then take it.

Be sure to stop by Christy's blog for more visual inspiration from scripture.

  10. Thanks for sharing this! We are at a crossroads, a transition in our own lives. It's tempting to go the way you want, or the ways that others tell you are best..., but we know that God's path is where we want to be!
