A Thought
We can all relate to these metaphors of life.  There have been many times in my life where I felt like I was being tested.  As you read the Bible you will see over and over again God testing his people. And after Jesus was baptized he went out into the desert and was tested.  And I know that for my life to be successful I must trust God and he has given me a trust of life.  And for sure as the Bible says so often in so many different ways, life is only temporary - it is not forever.  So we could consider the Bible with these three metaphors that Rick Warren suggests.


A Prayer
Dear Father,

We thank you for your Word. We pray that Jesus will help us as we are being tested. As it is stated in  Hebrews 2:18, "Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested."  We thank you for sending Your Son for us.

And Father, we put our trust in you and we seek your ways.  Proverbs 3:5-6 states, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take."  Please I pray continue to guide us.

I know that my days are numbered and you decide when my days are done. As it says in Psalm 139:16, "You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed."  Father let me live my life here on earth in such a manner that I may spend eternity with you.

In Jesus name I pray.
