We're between snowstorms with a major one bearing down on us tomorrow. As I headed down the road to pick up a granddaughter, I was so blessed to see the familiar stripes on the road from the brine trucks. I had never heard of these before moving to "snow country" but they are trucks that drive around and spray a salt solution on the roads, making our paths clear much sooner after a storm! I always try to wait for them to do this before going out, and I appreciate all the hard workers who provide this service for us, along with all the wonderful snow plow drivers, whenever we have a snowstorm! It's so vital for all of us Sandwich Generation caregivers and granny nannies to be able to get out and about when we are needed, and these wonderful people help us so much by keeping our paths clear so we can see where to go and get there safely!
Of course,there is One Who works non-stop to keep our life paths clear and is very willing to teach us His paths and HIs truths and I am so grateful to Him as well. I was reminded of that by these encouraging Bible verses that are so wonderful for praying for ourselves as well as teaching our children and grandchildren to pray simple Scripture prayers. Perfect for the Sandwich Generation family! :)
Such simple and encouraging Bible verses, yet so profound as Bible memory verses for us and for the children in our lives as we teach them to pray for wisdom and for guidance, and to wait on the Lord to teach us HIS paths.
Make me know Your ways, O LORD;
Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.
As members of the Sandwich Generation, caring for the elderly parents in our family, perhaps babysitting grandchildren, we know well the importance of waiting on God's perfect timing. And teaching our grand children to pray specifically for this can be a valuable part of the spiritual legacy we share with them.
