Seeking His Paths

Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, Lord, have never forsaken 
those who seek you.
Psalm 9:10 NIV

My husband, the "Always Alert Deer Hunter," is always seeking deer paths on our walks.  The one above is a "Man Path" created as a short cut to a field on which the land owner can drive his heavy equipment.  There is not a lot going on this time of year so the path has become strewn with leaves and debris.  Deer paths are less noticeable and are shortcuts through the woods to the deer's feeding ground.  He wants to know where the deer are so he can determine the best place to set up his deer stand.  We eat the venison during the year and share it with our family. (It takes two TN deer compared to one IL deer so we never seem to have enough).  He provides for our family and saves us money.  Plus, we like our deer meat.
 If we follow His Paths, God provides for us.  He will lead us to His Plans for our lives if we are alert to the signs He leaves for us, do the work He gives us and thank Him for the privilege of serving Him afterward.
Thank you, God, for your Paths.
