What To Do

How many times in you life have you been left wondering what to do? When you're looking for concrete answers and they don't seem to come He provides. 

Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. -- Jeremiah 6:16

This beloved verse came up in my reading the other day. I've been doing a read through of the Bible this year. I admit some days are more difficult than others; all those begats and atrocities. But most days either a single verse or a story speak to me. I am grateful for the time to attempt this.

Another cherished verse came to me from a friend in Bible study. I am forever grateful to her for this answer and I pray it will always come to mind when I don't know what to do.

It's so comforting to know that the burden of answering that age old question is not mine to carry. I hope and pray that you, too, find the answers today.

I love the sofa in the picture. It reminds me of the one we just ordered. We sold our old sofa at a garage sale early this month and then spent the better part of the month furniture shopping. We calculated we've now bought five sofas in our 34 years of marriage. I was thankful when number five was ordered Friday so we could get on with some summer fun.

I'll leave you with some reminders of our Sunday hike at Suntop Peak.

  1. The bible never fails to shed light when we need it most. Thanks for sharing and I love your nature pics. Beautiful!

  2. Love the hiking pictures - so beautiful! I agree with Lorrie. The Bible never lets it down. I know there have been many times in my life that the right passage will be given to me at just the right time. But then again, God promises to always take care of our needs. =)

    1. It was so quiet there all you could hear were birds and the breeze.

  4. OMGosh, I have to move real fast to catch up with you sofawise

    1. I'm sure being couch potatoes (and having messy kids) has not helped, but one replacement had to do with a 3,000 mile move and one is a love seat in a different room. Hoping this one will last awhile!

  5. Love this Bible Verse! It has helped me get through more than one difficult situation or decision in my life. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Those are wonderful verses! Thanks for sharing them. I've been looking for comfort and answers also, and have been reading Psalms.

  7. This is a verse I have recited over and over again throughout the years.

  8. I love the verse you shared.
    I too struggle with waiting for answers. I want them to be LOUD and CLEAR, sometimes they are not.

    Your photos are great.
