Our Steps Are Ordered

Thank you Lord that Your ways are not our ways and that Your thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Thank you Father that You say in Your word that our steps are ordered. Oh Father pour out Your strength on the days that we want our steps our way, pour out Your helper, your sweet Holy Spirit to softly speak and to gently nudge us back onto the right path. Oh Father that You would re-direct us when we want to go our own way. When things become too complicated and life seems so unfair- it is there in that moment that we need You most.  Please surround us with Your mercy and Your grace and speak to us with great clarity that we would know that we know that it is You speaking. Your word says that the sheep know the Shepherd's voice. Oh Father, guide, lead and direct us. Help our hearts not to harden in times of great adversity. Help us to know You in a deeper way, to call on You and to cling to You and You alone in times that we are weary. We thank You that You are the one true Father. So unlike the unloving earthly Fathers so many of us have experienced. Your love is true. It is pure. It is unconditional. It is eternal. You are always there. Always leading. Always guiding. Always ordering our steps. Thank you Father that you are the beginning and the end. You are the creator of all things. I thank you that even right now, at this very moment you are creating and ordering our steps. You are making every crooked path straight. You are working all things together for our good and Your glory . Oh be glorified Father in my life and in the lives of all who are reading now. Be glorified and highly lifted up. 
- "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall,
he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand."- Psalm 37:23-24
