How often do we pray, asking God to make our paths straight or our burdens light?
How often do we ask Him to change our course to one that's easy or at least not as difficult as the one before us?
But how often do we ask Him to give us the courage and strength to walk the path before us; to give us the proper feet and footing that will allow us to make it through that rocky terrain?!
David wrote the following while he was hiding from Saul and running for his life in the barren wilderness:
"He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he causes me to stand on the heights."
(2 Samuel 22:34)
The ibex that live in the rocky terrain around Israel are amazing! They are so surefooted and jump from rock to rock. God gave them the feet needed to live in that landscape. These are likely the deer that are referenced by David. And it's in that wilderness when he recognizes that God will not always make our paths straight and easy. Sometimes He will say "No, I'm sorry. This time it will be a difficult path." But God will give us the ability to make it through those dark times and tough paths.
He is always with you;
He will walk that nearly impossible path by your side
and at times He may even carry you when the burden is so heavy it buckles your knees.

Here's how to participate:
1. Select a scripture.
My hope is that each week you will search your Bible and select a verse that has meaning for you.
Here's a link to a good Bible verse search engine.
2. Add a photo to it.
I hope that you will chose a photo that goes with your chosen scripture, and not just throw these two elements together. The photo can be from your archives or a new shot. Please only use your own photos. You can have the scripture on your photo, below it, make a collage - however you want, as long as the two elements are together!
3. Put the Scripture & a Snapshot button in your post.
You won't be deleted or banned if you don't. It just helps spread the word...and the Word. ;)
It also helps visitors from the blog hop quickly identify your Scripture & a Snapshot post.
4. Come back here and link up your post.
Please link directly to your Scripture & A Snapshot post, not the home page of your blog.
