Path

“Savior, may I learn to love thee…walk the path that thou hast shown”

We all have a different story.

We all take a different walk through life.

One of my favorite things is to see a path, road or walkway that has trees draped over it.

I feel like it is so picturesque, so beautiful.

On the path of life, our experiences shape us, and we become.

Our life is made up of the choices that we make.

As we make each choice, our character forms.

This is who we are.

We make good choices and bad, but all of them shape us.

We all try to get to one place: Happiness.

There are lots of roads that pretend to lead here.

We can get trapped thinking we are headed in the right direction, only to fall lost, alone and miserable.

The only sure promise is a straight and narrow path.

This is the plan of God.

He has promised us how to be happy. He will not only tell us about the path, but He will walk by our side each step of the way.

I’m amazed at all of the philosophies of the world.

It’s so easy to be confused, misguided and over-promised.

We need to stay true to the path that leads to real happiness.

I’ve seen friends, siblings and loved ones try many paths.

Some have led to sorrow and pain, and others have led to great light and love.

Above all, we need to pause and remember we are all looking for the same thing.

Happiness.

Let’s refocus and remember to stick to the path.

Hold tight to the iron rod, or word of God.

Let’s be true to our covenants, our faith and our Lord.

Let’s acknowledge when we’ve fallen down, and get back up.

I saw a billboard that said this:

It’s so true. Our world is falling apart. It’s looking for answers.

Looking for the light at the end of the path.

Let’s not forget the real reason we’re here.

To return to God who loves us, proving in all things we’re faithful and we have done His will.

Here’s to all of you, on your path… wherever you may be.

I dedicate this post to my brother Kent, as he tries to find his path to eternal joy and happiness. As you chose to pursue a relationship and leave The Mormon Bachelor behind, always remember, I love you.
