More From Belle Todd

November 9, 2020 by Belle Todd (Texas, USA)

Since writing my devotional on the 23rd Psalm, I have found myself needing guidance and peace more than ever.  My mom went into hospice care this past fall, and I am her caregiver.  Being responsible for someone else brings on many decisions.  God tells us to acknowledge him and that God will direct our paths, but I think I was getting that wrong in a sense. I was acknowledging God, but then also trying to direct my path.  I have learned that our part is just to acknowledge God. After that, the proverbial ball is in God’s court—it is up to God to direct our steps.  That takes so much pressure off of us.  So I am trying to do my part and to leave all else with God.

Throughout my Walk I experienced the presence of the Risen One in the devotional spaces as well as in times of teaching, meditation, and prayer. The communion with brothers, experienced in the daily sharing at the table and in the Word, generated deep bonds of brotherhood.”
