Straight Ahead

Let your eyes look straight ahead;  fix your gaze directly before you.  Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.

– Proverbs 4:25,26 (NIV)  


Looking straight ahead

fixing my gaze directly before me

means decidedly ignoring distractions

means not being dissuaded from the path

the Lord has laid out for me

no matter what tempts me 

to veer off


Eyes and heart

set determinedly forward

and straight on,

for this deliberate path

is one of reward

of joy

of the few

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

– Matthew 7:13,14 (NIV)  


A highway will be there, a roadway. It will be called the Holy Road. Sinners won’t travel on it. It will be for those who walk on it. Godless fools won’t wander onto it.

– Isaiah 35:8 (GW)
