1075th -- Walking The Path


We should always remember and keep in mind that we are unique and special 
human beings. We are a one-of-a-kind creation. There is no duplicate you 
and there is no duplicate me. We each have our own abilities, gifts, 
talents and idiosyncrasies. We are created individually and unique in our 
own special way, but sadly there are many who wish they weren't who they 
are. They imagine the life of someone they admire or envy and wish they 
were in those shoes instead of their own. What they fail to realize is 
that their life is just as special; they just don't recognize it for 
themselves. We should always strive to become better versions of 
ourselves, but we shouldn't strive to be a copy or a clone of someone 
else. We can admire the good habits of others and adapt them in our own 
life, but we should also be happy with who God made us to be. We are the 
best version of us that was ever created. Always remember that you are 
precious, priceless and perfect. You may not feel it at any particular 
time, but nonetheless you are all of these things.

Be encouraged to have the right self-image of yourself. See every 
experience that you have gone through as a stepping stone into a bright 
and blessed future. Every mountaintop of success and every valley of 
failure make you, shape you and move you into who you will become. We are 
a product of our past and if our past brought us suffering, heartache and 
pain, we can use what we've learned for our betterment now and in our 
future to come. We don't have to become stagnant and lackadaisical, but 
rather we can be motivated, determined and resolved that nothing but 
victory will suffice.

When we have an unmovable, unshakable and unwavering faith that all will 
be well, we will have dictated our future into a real and tangible 
reality. When we believe in ourselves anew and know that God will work 
all things together for our good, we will be encouraged again to know that 
no matter what happened before, the future will be bright, blessed and 
beautiful. We have to believe it for ourselves and receive it for 
ourselves. Love yourself today my friend and remember how special and 
unique you really are.

I hope this message inspires and challenges your heart to see that every 
challenge in life helps you, strengthens you and makes you who you are.


Growing up in these rugged mountains of West Virginia I have had the joy 
of walking many trails and paths over the years. There have been ones that 
went across sun-drenched meadows and there have been ones that went 
through shady woods. There have been ones next to roaring rivers and there 
have been ones next to peaceful lakes. There have been ones going uphill 
and there have been ones going downhill. There have been smooth, grassy 
ones and there have been ones full of rocks and holes. Still, each one has 
had its own special delight. I have loved walking along them all too even 
though I have stumbled and fallen a few times.

When it comes to the path of my life, however, I have stumbled and fallen 
more than just a few times. Actually, I have hit the ground more times 
than I can count. It hasn’t always been a grassy trail over a sun-drenched 
meadow for me. It has been a path full of twists, turns, rocks, holes, and 
obstacles as well. I haven’t always kept my eyes on the road or my hand in 
God’s either. Still, no matter how many times I have ended up face down in 
the dirt God has always been there to forgive me and help me back up. I 
have learned too that it doesn’t matter how many times you stumble and 
fall. It only matters how many times you get back up. Even if you stumble 
and fall one million times then you need to rise up and try again one 
million and one. God is always there waiting to forgive you and help you 
to walk your life’s path one more time.

I can see too now why God sent me along this path my life has taken. It 
lead me to where I am now. Without the growth it gave, learning it 
provided, and even falls it dealt me I would not be who I am today. I plan 
on continuing down my life’s path then doing all the good I can and 
helping others along the way. I plan on walking it with a smile on my 
face, a song on my lips, love in my heart, joy in my soul, and my hand 
firmly in God’s. I know it is leading me home.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 118:5-9 “I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, 
and set me in a large place. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what 
can man do unto me? The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: 
therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to 
trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in 
the LORD than to put confidence in princes.”

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “For our light affliction, which is but for a 
moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which 
are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things 
which are not seen are Eternal.”

Matthew 12:35-37 Jesus declares
“A good man out of the good treasure of 
the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil 
treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle 
word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of 
Judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou 
shalt be condemned.”

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against 
you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: 
therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou 
mayest love the LORD Thy God, and that thou mayest obey His voice, and 
that thou mayest cleave unto Him: for He is thy life, and the length of 
thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy 
fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever 
things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, 
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if 
there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
