You Are On The Right Path! Right?

English: Blossom by the path The blossom is on...

The pathway to God is straight and narrow.  This narrow path has less travelers because innumerable obstacles will block their way. Don’t be surprised when those you may know and love are not there! Everyone else is on the frequently traveled  . . . super highway to wherever. 

By way of sincere and constant prayer, you can overcome obstacles and be guided along the narrow path. Prayer helps you to advance toward God, to not lose sight of your special destiny, and to develop and strengthen your soul. 

When you pray you should center your thoughts on God. You should forget the things of the world, what is going on around you, and even your own self. To forget all else except God is not easy. Effort is needed! It requires great yearning! When your heart is pure and free of your own imaginings and desires, your prayers have the greatest effect. 

Another very important requirement for reaching the true state of prayer is faith. You should have complete trust in the mercy of God and be certain that He will grant what is best for you.

    Wow! I love this! I was so impressed when reading this. Your words of wisdom speaks volumes. It stopped me in my tracks with what I was doing to read it in its entirety.

    This statement says it all: “Everyone else is on the frequently traveled . . . super highway to wherever.” If we don’t know where we’re going, how can we know what path we are to travel? Hmmm… makes you think for sure.

    Prayer and faith is key. Focus on God and you will go far.

    Thanks for posting such a thought provoking, timely piece.
