Our lives do not follow a straight path. There are many twists and turns along the way. It is good to know that Jesus is with us each step of the way.
No matter what corner I go around on the winding road of life
“I will lead them in paths that they have not known” Isaiah 42:16
I do not know what is around that next turn in this winding trail of life. But I know this–whatever there is around that corner, I shall have my hand in Another’s hand when I go and face it. And if I feel a little bit disturbed, I shall move my finger around in the palm of that hand till I find the scar, and then I shall know that Jesus Christ, who on the cross was wounded for my sins–is not going to leave me no matter what corner I go around on the winding road of life.
“Uphold my steps in Your paths, that my footsteps may not slip!” Psalm 17:5

When we stumble in our walk with the Lord, He is there to pick us up, dust us off, and nudge us back to serving Him.
Sometimes, we refuse God’s help. We refuse to repent and ask for God to help us. However, Jesus never leaves us. He will chasten, convict, and compel us to come home.
When we are ready to repent, Jesus welcomes us back with open arms. He then assigns us a task for us to accomplish. God never puts a truly repentant believer on the shelf.
Ask God to give you His next assignment. Then go out and do it. Obedience pleases God!
