"You will seek Me and find Me, if you seek Me with all your heart." ~Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)

Dear heavenly Father, we offer You our praise, and thank You for Your Word, which is truly a light to our path. We're grateful for the promise You give, that we will find You if we seek You with all our heart. Lord, we pray that You'll add Your blessing to this study of Your Word. May those who take the time to study these passages be touched by Your Spirit. In Jesus' precious and powerful Name, Amen.

Dear friend,

These are some of the verses that spoke to me as I wrote "Texas Roads." It is my sincere hope and prayer that these verses will be helpful to you as well. Feel free to copy this page and print it out to work through it at your own pace.

At Home in Him,

Read 1 Timothy 5:4, 8. In the story, Dani gives up her job and life to move to Miller's Creek to care for her aunt. What does the Bible have to say about caring for family members?

Read Mark 5:18-19. At the end of the story, Dani visits Cecille before returning to Miller's Creek. Why did Jesus send the once-demon-possessed man home instead of allowing him to join the disciples and other followers? How can you apply this to your life?

Read Joshua 2:17-18. What is the significance of the scarlet cord? What does it mean for Rahab & her family? What does it mean for you? How does this passage tie in to Texas Roads?

Read Samuel 1-2. What sacrifice did Hannah make? Why? How is Mama Beth's story similar?

Read Ecclesiastes 12:5. Where is our real home?

Read Proverbs 1:15-16; 2:20. Are all paths (roads) of life the same? If not, what makes the difference?
