Stand at the crossroads and look

Jeremiah 6:16

This is what the Lord says:

"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.
But you said, 'We will not walk in it.'

What is the way O Lord I ask. The burden on me has clouded my vision. Day in day out I looked oppressed and lost. Without a focus, wondering and squandering my precious time that could never be recovered. Watching the sands of time slipping away yet immobilized by fear. Inaction drowning me with sorrows. Couldn't breathe, my heart sinking in an overwhelming sense of despair. Struggle for survival, absent.

O Lord shine your directing light upon me. Lead me O Lord like the good shepherd. Break through the cloud of confusiong and release me from the oppression. Grant me diligent hand so that my soul will not starve. Cast the spirit of sluggardness out of the temple, that You've purchased with your blood. Put inside this earthern vessel Your love and Your glory. Shine through me.
