Brighter is My Path


My personal battles over the last few months have seemed to increase in size and strength.......
Emotionally and physically hit from every angle......
It's been during this time, I have had so many unanswered  questions......
My lack of understanding grew just a tad.....
My stress  rose to a new level.....
And to be honest, I could feel myself shutting down.....
The place where I emotionally go to hide within myself........
At least that is what I thought I was doing.

In reality I was walking towards my familiar emotional hiding place......
The place where I throw the covers over my head, close my eyes and just wait.
But this time my path towards that dark isolation place looks so much different....
The quietness I long for is not the isolation I run to....
It is a place to hear His voice....
To feel His peace...
His comfort...
To restore my inter strength deep within my soul........
To be renewed and refreshed.

I have been reminded of many of my daddy God's promises to me....
He has sent encouraging words through friends....
He has given me the words to read to lift my soul......
He has opened my eyes to a better understanding.

One of His promises tells.....
" the path of the righteous gets brighter and brighter"
( Proverbs 4:18)


My daddy God has shown up in so many small, quiet  ways.....
A whisper and a touch.....
A gentle step.....
A warm embrace.

He knew  had I gone to my hiding place, my eyes would have been shut to Him......
I would only see the circumstances surrounding me.....
I would miss the blessings and His light that is shining on my path.

Brighter is my path......
And so is yours.....
Keep walking in His grace~

  1. Remembering God's promises is how I have gotten through some pretty tough times.. It reminds me that everything is temporary, that 'this too shall pass'..
    I absolutely love the proverb.. I wrote it down :) The perfect verse to meditate on or even for a quick pick me up..
    I really enjoy your blog!

    Oh, dear one, without our Pappa God our valleys would have so much more difficult, don't you think! Thank you for sharing with us your trust in Him when only darkness surrounds you. Visiting via Joan's.
    Much love to you

  3. Hi Stacey, beautiful post my friend. I so know what you are talking about. I think that we need that time of refreshing, being alone! But alone with God as opposed to being alone with ourselves! He brings the light! Great post and I'm praying for you

    Get still. Expect His arrival. It may take some time, but when the confirmation comes, that He is near and aware and caring, there will be a delightful rush of fresh, clean air...Revivified and ready for more. Great poem!
