Teach me how to live


Psalm 27: 11 ‘Teach me your way, O LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.’

I was thinking that each person’s live is almost like a garden.  In the beginning when we are born its clear and there aren’t many plants in this garden.  As babies we are nurtured and we learn about love, comfort, happiness, kindness, compassion, a sense of being important and cared for.  As we grow up we start learning and in the learning we become the people we are today.  Some of us are positive as we were taught to stay positive and look on the bright side of live and some of us are negative because that is how we were taught. 

As I view life right now I need the LORD to teach me to live.  I want to follow in HIS ways, I want to become more like Jesus and less like me.

People can be disappointing but God knows that and that is why He instructs us to lean on HIM, follow HIM, and trust in HIM.


Prayer:  Heavenly Father, please will You teach me to live and help me to follow You in a straight path, my life isn’t as simple as I thought.  I ask this in Jesus Name.  Amen

It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
