Which path do I choose? The Bible says there is a right way in the eyes of man, but in the end will lead to destruction.
The Enemy wants each of us to follow the wide path, which leads to destruction.
Many of these paths are places that Jesus is not welcome: When I watch certain things on television or listen to certain things on the radio. If I read a magazine that destroys the eyes and up raises the lust of the flesh, when I am a part of unwholesome conversation.
We are all tempted to take the wrong path in life at times; but we can avoid pitfalls, if we ask the Lord daily to guide our footsteps.
How will I know if I am on the right path? Well, these are some of the things that I will need to do to help me to stay on that path: the first thing is to avoid all appearance of evil. I need to spend time with the Lord in prayer daily, as well as reading the Bible. Attending church services regularly, as well as surrounding myself with Godly people. I need daily to purpose in my heart to follow the narrow path.
God has wonderful things in store for us if we follow the path that leads to him. We are all runners in this race, (life) and we all fall down many times. The focus is not on how many times I fall down, but my focus is on, will I make it to the finish?
There will be many distractions while I am running my race, and many times I may want to give up, but the Bible says if I faint not, I will reap a harvest in due season.
We all need to remember to fix our eyes on the prize. What is the prize? It’s Jesus, with his arms opened wide, saying, ‘welcome, Thy good and faithful servant, enter in’

our main path is Jesus, you are so right there.
the phrase that starts with
(If I read a magazine) my microsoft word is telling me that it needs some work.

You have an inspiring message to share here, you've made some good points. Maybe if you used some dialog, or real life examples it would have more "spark". Just a thought.

I love this...It is well put, and has a mighty message put simply and truthly -- which is the way God tends to do things...I am certain that He is using you mightily...May He continue to do so...Also, may He bless you greatly day to day with each moment you live...Juanita Pittman-Brown

Good reminder Carol and very encouraging ending. From a critiquing point of view, there is something not quite right in the phrasing of the section that starts, "Many of these paths are places ..." and finishes "part of unwholesome conversation." It's a bit fragmented. But the message was good, true and an on target contribution to the challenge. With love, Deb
