Psalms 37:23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his ways (ESV). This scripture has delivered me out of the hands of the spirit of frustration and aggravation on many occasions. Why do I say that? Because this life is not an easy one to navigate through, especially if you're trying to do it on your own. You're in the decision making set daily, and trying to decided which decision is right for your life. If we all are honest, we can admit that sometimes we feel we get it wrong sometimes; some of us would say we get it wrong a lot of times!


We question ourselves about our careers, even the relationships in our personal or professional life. Some people worry if theyare giving enough of their time to their families; or if they are allowing work to consume them. We wrestle with deciding where to live and build our lives, and who we should build it with. One thing that frustrates me, is how I use my time. I understand that time is precious because once you use it, it's gone; this is why I don't like to waste it. I went through a season in my life where I would question everything I was doing. I found myself always taking time to sit down and ponder if these things that I was involved with were worth me using up so much of my time. Then I would be aggravated with myself for using up time to ponder these question, when I could've been doing something more productive (Yes I was a mess!). I remember having one of those help me Lord moments! What is a help me Lord moment? That's when you have struggled with something for so long, and have exhausted all of your strength; and you can only muster up enough energy to say help me Lord. Yep, that's where I was and God lead me to this scripture Psalm 37:23. That is why I stated earlier that Psalm 37:23 delivered me from frustration and aggravation. I realize that I didn't have to worry about whether or not I was on the right path, because God was establishing my steps and directing me. I just had to make sure that I was delighting myself in His ways. Meaning I had to make sure that my life was pleasing to him.


Listen this life will have you on a never ending roller coaster, if you spend it worrying about every step you take. Leave yoursteps in God’s hands because he is the author of your life, and if He wrote the story he knows how it begins, all the in between and how it ends. You just focus on delighting yourself in the Lord and be pleasing in his sight.


People of God listen, the word of God says in Proverbs 3:6, In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. If you acknowledge Him in all your ways, your path is already mapped out for you. Your life is in the master’s hand and that is the safest place for it to be. Don't worry about the path your on as long as God is the head of the life you live!
