Jesus told him,
“I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one can come to the Father except through me”
(John 14:6; NLT).

Lord,

1. May I always choose the path
That brings me closer
To your side.

2. May I always choose the thoughts
That help me grow like you,
My Guide.

3. May I always choose the words
That soothe and heal,
The way yours do.

4. May I always choose the deeds
That nurture others —
Just like you.

Put on your new nature, and be renewed
as you learn to know your Creator and

become like him
(Colossians 3:10; NLT).
