Isaiah 26:8 Yes, Lord, walking in the way of Your laws, we wait for You; (As we walk in the path through which the Lord leads us, even when that path holds challenges and difficulties, even when that path leads us into pain where we are unable to see the destination, we know that His way is perfect and that He has perfected the path through which He leads us. When we walk in the laws and truths of the Lord, when we walk in His judgments and discipline toward us, judgments and laws and truths to bring us into greater healing and wholeness, we can trust that He has formed our path no matter where it leads because it always leads straight to Him.) Your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. (Because we often find ourselves in paths where we can’t see the end, in paths that are often difficult and painful, our focus has to be on the Lord and on the integrity and truth of His Name, to consciously focus on Who He says He is, on His faithfulness and mercy and kindness and grace toward us. We can only find hope through the difficulties that lie before us today as we remember Who He is and what He has done in the past. Therein do we find strength for today!) May the Lord richly bless you this day! Submitted by: Sally Shields
