The people wandered the wilderness for years, waiting for peace, for the promised land. Yet the whole time you were with them. What I would give for a pillar of smoke leading me forward by day, and fire by night! I feel as though I spend so much time wading through the much, trying to discern where you are calling me, which direction is faithful. Guide me, O Lord, in your ways, in your truths, so that my decisions may honor you, may proclaim my faith in you. I am in constant turmoil about what is right and what is wrong. Lead me on your path, so that my feet may fall on holy ground and my life might proclaim your glory.
