This is the Way


MP900427767 (1) 

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21

Tonight's the night. After a 13 hour trek to Indiana my son Josh will be officially launched. His new adventure begins and my own personal one continues. I want my blog and my simple musings to be an encouragement and a blessing. My heart's desire is to present God's love and truth through my journey as husband, father and son...the three pillars of my life.

What I don't want; is to present myself as a perfect dad or any one of those pillars. I have made many mistakes as a dad, some I have revealed through this blog.
(see here for proof) What has kept me moving forward in my journey is hearing (and obeying) that small still voice saying...This is the way...walk here…

When I have not known the way...He has been there and continues to be there for me. I cannot love my family the way they NEED to be loved without Father God...it just not possible. I need someone to show me the way…His way.

"In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:6

Thou will show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:1

Now you've got my feet on the life path, all radiant from the shining of your face.
Ever since you took my hand, I'm on the right way. Psalm 16:11 – The Message

Here is a poem I wrote a few years back…it describes my heart position right now.

This is the Way

I listen to my steps
The cadence familiar
By faith I have reasoned
my way here
The sureness of paths
made known

This is the way

My view changes
The way does not
I am woven into a timeless
expression of purpose

This is the way

Soulfari will be quiet for a few days as we travel to Indiana and back, please pray for safe travel and for Josh’s start. I appreciate you all, God Bless!
