You have made known to me the paths of life; and you will fill me with joy in your presence. Acts 2:28 NIV
One summer a couple of years ago I spent five months in the mountains at Sawtooth Methodist Camp. It was the epitome of the phrase “God’s country.” A very special place for me was the labyrinth. I once read that a labyrinth turns a simple act of walking into a peaceful journey with God. The labyrinth at camp was my silent retreat. As I entered I felt peace, and as I walked I talked to God and he helped me with all my heartaches, fears, and joys.
During this Lenten season, a wonderful way to spend time in meditation is with this printed labyrinth. Follow the path with your finger or color your way to the center. As you follow the lines ask God to walk with you. Stay in the middle and just be still with God. Then as you follow your way back, thank God for all the joys in your life.
Dear Lord thank you for using this time to pull me closer to You. By your grace, I will walk by faith and not by sight. In Jesus’ name, Amen
