“The Lord is righteous in all His ways and kind in all His deeds.  The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to
all who call upon Him in truth.”  (Psalm

Many contend with the Lord,
wanting creation to be as they imagine it ought to be.  “I want things this way.”  But the Lord, who made all things, has
established the course and is kind to all, gracious and slow to anger.  All who come to Him in truth will see things
as they are and come to know the fullness of His kindness and goodness.  Come to the One who made all things and
explore truth.

Lord, I have so many ideas and they fill my head.  Lead me in the way of truth that I may now
and always abide in truth.  Guide me
according to Your goodness and mercy to be truthful with you and others.  Let me not be caught up in the false ways of
this world, but know that You alone are God and there is no other.  Lead me, O Lord, into Your presence now and

Lord Jesus, You are the way and
truth.  You have come to reveal the life
we were created to live.  Guide me this
day to walk humbly with You and discover more about how to live.  Teach me to be humble as You are humble that
I would reflect what You have taught us and live according to the Father’s
will.  Guide me now and always in the way
of salvation which You have prepared.
