He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake | a random post :)

“He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”
Psalm 23:3

Oh my! My randomly & overly frequent posts have been non-existent the last 5 days. ;) Here we are at Friday, again. God’s mercy has been abundant and His grace sufficient! Each heart beat is a gift from Him and each breath breathed a demonstration of His amazing handiwork! Each new day is filled to overflowing with spiritual blessings and I am constantly reminded that I deserve nothing but death and eternity in hell and yet He has given me everlasting life. He has clothed me in His righteousness! Apart from Christ there is no good in me. Apart from Christ, our hearts are “exceedingly wicked above all “{Jer 17:9} and our sin is deserving of death{Romans 6:23} “There is none righteous, no, not one” {Rom 3:10} but Christ, King above all kings and Lord of all lords, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” He freely offers this salvation to all who repent and call on the name of The Lord{Rom 10:13}. Seek the Lord with all your heart and He promises you will find Him! “But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.” Deut 4:29

As God is the author of my days, each step is directed by Him and there is really no randomness, accidents, or “chance”. :) Each new day is an exciting adventure as He leads His children in the path of righteousness and yes, it is easy to forget that but it is so true! What joy we have knowing all we have to do is hold His hand and He will lead us every step of the way! So, below is randomness from my week that was perfectly ordered by the Lord{yes, even the hurdles/trials!} Lots of baking, work, coffee, crazy kiddos{as usual ;)}, rainy days, and rainbows. God is good!! :) Seek the Lord, Friends for “He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” {Hebrews 11:6}!

Too many Random pictures{mostly from the phone}! Hover for description and, as usual, my apologies to mobile views cause this is going to load super slow for y’all. ;)

“I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.”
Psalm 34:1-3

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. I love your random posts ! And this one was such a great reminder of God’s mercy and the fact – for me – that He is in control : my church is supposed to leave the building where we currently meet on sept 30th, and we still have no other building to go ! But He knows better than us and we have to trust Him !
    Your sisters and yourself are really beautiful, I love those pictures !
    Have a fantastic day Rachel !

    1. Yes, it is so true. He knows so much better than us and His ways are truly perfect! Philippians 4:6-7
      Thank you, Marie!! I am blessed by your comments. :) They always make my day!!

  2. Rachel,
    Fun post! It was a good encouragement as well.

    Do you have a recipe for the M&M cookies? If not, don’t go to any work for it. I was just curious because we have been trying to find a new one that everyone likes. (A bit of challenge) Unfortunately, our Grandma’s (Which is loved by all) doesn’t work well where we live. It is all very odd as we don’t live at a high elevation, but even she can’t get them to turn out.

    I’m sorry I haven’t been commenting much. I haven’t had much free time in a while.

    Thanks again for letting see a little bit of your family. It is so encouraging!!

    1. Thank you, Christina! I am thankful the Lord uses my posts to encourage you. Such an encouragement to hear!
      The cookie recipe is FANTASTIC! I will email it to you. :)

Leave a comment and make my day! ;)
