Dear God, Thank You for this food. Thank You for the many hands beyond this home that have made this food possible. Teach me to live in a care-filled way that acknowledges the depth of Your provision. Make me aware of the goodness and the injustices that have brought this food to my table so that I can better care for Your creation and see justice done. - Luke Wilson (A Rocha Canada)

Way to Go!
So many people, young people especially, wonder if they are going in the direction that the Lord would want them to walk in. They hope to receive word that the direction they are walking in is the right one and hearing no response from God is exasperating to Christians like this. However, during an evening prayer meeting a few weeks ago, my pastor, Mike Nichols, said “if you are walking in the right direction, you may not hear anything. So… carry on.” He backed up his point by sighting Isaiah 30:21, which says: “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." I have not found any biblical insight about what to do when you hear nothing from God. But in the meantime, I have learned to trust in the words I heard from Him and/or from others and trust that what I have heard is best.
