Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 (ESV)
The Way, The Truth, The Life
You became my life when I had no life. I was lost and without hope in the world. I was living in darkness and walking on a path that led away from you. I was living as your enemy doing whatever I pleased whenever I pleased. I lived entirely for myself. I was self-sufficient, self-centered and independent. I didn’t want or need anything from anyone. I didn’t think about you. I didn’t care what you thought. I was in a really bad place. That was quite a while ago. Yes, it was at least from my perspective. But, it is good to look back and remember where I was when you rescued me from a life without you. You took me out of the muck and mire of what you could call my life. You set me on solid ground. You drew me to yourself. You turned my life around. You helped me to cry out to you. You became my Savior and my Lord. You gave me a new life to live now that will continue on forever in eternity with you. Yes, I did. You are now my life. In every way I want to do what pleases you. I want to know and do your will. I want to accomplish everything that you have planned for me to do for you. I will help you accomplish my plans and purposes for your life.
You are the truth that has and is continuing to set me free. You are speaking into my life. You are molding and shaping me into the person you want me to be. You are using your word to change my heart and transform my mind. You are allowing me to think your thoughts. I will continue to meet with you in your word. There is no place that I would rather be than in your presence. You have drawn near to me as I have drawn near to you. There is nothing I would rather do than be taught by you. I know that you are not finished with me yet. I am your work in progress. Yes, you are. Your work in me will continue right up until I come to meet you face to face. Yes, it will.
You are my way through life. You are leading me through all the ups and downs and twists and turns of life. The road hasn’t always been easy. I have experienced pain and suffering and loss. I have never been on my own. I have never been all alone. You have always been with me to help me. You have always held on to me as I have held on to you. You will never let me go. I am in your firm and steady grip. I am all yours. Yes, you are mine. You are my way, my truth and my life. Yes, I am.
Lord, thank you for being the way that is leading me through life. Thank you that for being the truth that teaches me and is setting me free to live my life with and for you. Thank you that you are the one that has given me a new life now and forever in heaven. Amen
