Stones in our paths…

If God sends us stony paths, He will provide us with strong shoes.—Alexander Maclaren

Good morning! I don’t know about you, but I have certainly had my share of days when I felt tested to the max. Sometimes it can be hard to keep “a chin up” when so many things are weighing us down.

I have found that on those tough and stressful days, I am continually taught the art of letting go, and the art of faith. We can’t control everything—and when we try to do so, life gets heavy quickly. This simple quote is one of my favorite reminders. We are equipped to handle what life sends our way—we simply must learn from the lessons than can teach us, and remember to use the tools that are given to us.

Your Turn:

Take a moment to reflect on trying times in your past and how you have pulled through. Make a list and pat yourself on the back for what you have overcome. Use this to inspire you when life gets tough. If you are in a tough situation today, remember to let go.

Today’s Affirmation:
Let go and let God.

Inspirations: Consider adding a morning devotion to your Good Morning routine. There are many great online resources for free email devotionals. Check out:


Stones in our paths… — 2 Comments

  1. My husband suffered a stroke and a brain injury on 1/28. He’s going to need to re-learn how to eat, speak and walk again. This has been such a difficult time in my life. So often, I’ve felt so lost and so all alone. Thank you for this quote. It’s a great reminder when I need it most that I’m really not alone at all.

  2. I had a conversation with a co-worker today about stress and worrying about things beyond our control and how God has to take charge of those things. As I was cleaning up some emails later, I realized that I missed this message and was pleased to see how it related to our conversation this morning. I made a copy for my friend and hope it will help her as it has helped me. Thanks for always finding the appropriate message for the day. My day may just not be the day you send it, but the day I need it.
    God Bless You!
