Watch and go

A blood moon taken on the night of the blood moon eclipse, only I didn't stay up to see the moon turn bloody; I made the picture and then Photoshop made it appear as real. Are we taking the easy way? Are we faking our walk with the Lord?

Act 2:19  And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 
Act 2:20  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: 
Act 2:21  And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. 

Is your walk with the Lord real? Or are you just manipulating things to appear to be in his will? Walk on the path that God has for you and be careful not to bump your head on a branch.

John 15:2  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 

Along the way something is watching. A young deer hides in the brush. Are we hiding too?

Job 34:21  For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings. 
Job 34:22  There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. 
Job 34:23  For he will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God. 

From the pond bridge the water is yucky, like it was full of yellow pollen, that could be, and it is not pretty. This could illustrate the filthy sins of the world or a stagnant pond that is life without God, a life of ones own making; a mess. Sometimes the LORD must correct his people as in Jerusalem of old.

Eze 24:12  She hath wearied herself with lies, and her great scum went not forth out of her: her scum shall be in the fire. 
Eze 24:13  In thy filthiness is lewdness: because I have purged thee, and thou wast not purged, thou shalt not be purged from thy filthiness any more, till I have caused my fury to rest upon thee. 
Eze 24:14  I the LORD have spoken it: it shall come to pass, and I will do it; I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I repent; according to thy ways, and according to thy doings, shall they judge thee, saith the Lord GOD. 

Nearby the Sacramento river flows with living waters. Always flowing, it is a delight to see.

Jer 2:13  For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. 

Are you easily discouraged? Does a twig block your way and you are too feeble to pass by? We have many excuses, but only one life to live to fulfill God's purpose for us.

Isa 35:3  Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 
Isa 35:4  Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. 
Isa 35:5  Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 
Isa 35:6  Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. 
Isa 35:7  And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. 

Follow the road to life more abundant and pay attention to not stray from the path.

Deu 5:32  Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. 
Deu 5:33  Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess. 

Your life is to be lived on the path that God has opened up to you, so keep going.

Jer 6:16  Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. 

Isa 30:20  And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: 
Isa 30:21  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
