Think Vertically

Life can be a hot-mess sometimes.  Don't you agree?  It can be kind of like the tree on the left.  Sometimes it's hard to focus, as life draws us into multiple directions all at the same time. 


But, the straight vertical lines of the background trees are kind of like our communication with God.  A straight line from the hot-messes directly to The One Who Can Do Something About Those Messes.  All we have to do is focus in on Him.

As this year draws to a close, may the new year bring forth more clarity, faith, and joy even in the midst of any hot-messes you may encounter.  Think vertically.  

God bless you and Happy New Year!

Because of Him and Unto Him,


  1. Have no one word yet. I changed the word I started with in 2017 to one that actually fit my whole year. It was "limitations" and I have sure lived with a few of those for the whole year so I am looking forward to seeing through the forest for the straight path that leads me to Him and not the trees. Happy New Year Diane...

    1. Happy New Year, Wise-hearted, Betty. Oh, and that straight path to Him is yours. You have been through so much this past year and here you walk, in all of Abba's Glory upon you. You are an example to so many, Betty, especially me. One foot in front of the other you go, showing us how to do it. I love you so and pray God's glorious blessings upon your soul. Regardless of any "hot mess" that may be thrown at you. For you are Abba's Daughter. Like Father, Like Daughter.
