John 14:6

"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through me."

How many times have I asked the Lord to show me what to do, when to do it, how to do it? Lately I feel like my heart is screaming "Lord, please show me which way to go!"
"I am the way"
I am full of doubts about myself, and others, and God, and the good in the world... I often find myself wishing I could make up my mind, stop beleiving Satan's lies, and know what to hold on to.
"I am the truth"
I just want to be happy. I want to know what the desires of my heart are, I want to know how to live that abundant life in John 10:10.
"I am the life"

He's not the road map, He's the way. He isn't a lie detector, He's the truth. He doesn't just save from death, He's the life.


Sometimes I'm so thickheaded.

I really don't like when it feels like I don't know where to go but I am so desperately looking for some type of lead. I always try to put myself in a mold of what I think I should be and it just makes it worse. This may be completely opposite of how you're feeling, but my dear friend Katy wrote to me in a letter over Christmas, "God delights in you. He delights in your craziness." It took me a while to grasp, but he made me that way and he loves it when I just accept it and move on."

Shannon, I hope and pray that you find peace as you enter into your last semester of graduate school and that God will give you direction about where to go and what to you. You are a force to be reckoned with, and the evil one knows it.
