A Difficult Path To Take -
Careful placement of your feet on difficult climbs takes concentration and care on the part of the climber in order to assure a safe trip. Gaining altitude on steep uneven granite blocks, is always challenging, and there is no substitute for stamina and experience when it comes to making good progress in this type of terrain. Traveling a path in life that is God pleasing also takes concentration, sustained effort, and can be extremely challenging to say the least. With all the snares and obstacles that everyday life seems to throw at us, it is vital that we have help. Completing a God pleasing well lived life here on earth is an impossible undertaking on our own. However, help is closer than you think, and it comes in the person of Jesus Christ. He paid the entry fee for us to have access to the God of this universe so we could be with Him forever. The below Bible verse talks about some of the benefits of being with God in heaven.
God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."
But until that day comes, it is important that we read and make use of the best navigational book out there. This book is called the Bible, and it contains all you will ever need to know about living a life that pleases God. No other book on earth contains so much time tested knowledge, wisdom, and direction for the human spirit. It is the only book that is able to guide you into the everlasting. It will be that ultimate source of light to illuminate even the darkest of times. So it does not matter if you scale the highest heights, or descend to the lowest depths, the Bible will provide guidance for whatever path you happen to be on. God's Word, the Bible assures you of this.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
