This thought came to me while I was driving back from Tennessee to New York. As I watched the sunrise in front of me with such big beautiful, bold and brilliant colors I was transfixed and began to think about how exciting and energizing sunrises are. That made me think of sunsets and how they’re calming and relaxing.
Walking Through It
During my hike through the Smoky Mountain trails I felt inspired by The Lord to share about the various seasons we walk through in our lives. Sometimes going through the journey is great; it’s amazing. Just like going up a difficult trail. You feel amazing, energized and encouraged. It was all worth it to get to the top!
“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” -Matthew 6:6 NIV
Jesus said to go into the prayer closet, but you can’t go in there if it’s full. You need to make space.

Words To Live By
