This is a favorite “peace” of a favorite path at Natural Bridge State Park, Slade, KY. Sitting on one of these fallen boulders, listening as the breezes brush through the treetops, it is so easy to hear the sweet whisper of the Holy Spirit.
Where do I begin?
One step at a time…
Hello, friend. My name is Jacqulyn Rae Whitecotton, but most people call me Jacquie. I am a child of God, and I enjoy stringing words together for the comfort and encouragement of others.
The Peace of the Path is, for the most part, a celebration of the hope I have found in an intimate relationship with God. These are revelations and musings along my spiritual walk, accentuated by an overwhelming appreciation of the love and beauty with which He has surrounded me, and through which He speaks to me.
My life has been so drastically transformed by God’s mercy and grace! Sometimes, I’m rendered speechless when I think about it. Sometimes, the words flow and flow, like tears of joy.
In Luke 7, the sinful woman, lacking water to wash the feet of Jesus, used what she did have…her tears. She used whatever she had, in service of her Savior. She even dried His feet with her hair. That is how I perceive my words…as offerings of praise and service to the Lover of my soul. They are what I have. I want to bless Him with their honesty and with their sweetness, as I share the serenity and splendor of His Spirit with you.
Has fear or any of its aliases, i.e., addiction, anxiety, or depression, ever threatened to consume you?
Have you found yourself attempting to adjust to or tolerate a life filled with dread and despair?
I understand. Fear dominated my existence from a very young age, and I dealt with it by numbing myself with alcohol, drugs, labels, and failed relationship after failed relationship…all temporary fixes that, eventually, only worsenend my mental state.
You don’t have to take that trail. There is another route – one that forges through the tangled underbrush and opens up to elevations far above the fear! This is the way I found, or rather, the Way that found me…the Way, the Truth, and the Life – the saving grace of Jesus Christ!
This is me and my husband, Jim. He is a very tangible manifestation of the love that my Father has for me, and I couldn’t possibly have an “About Page” that didn’t have him in it. We are one!
The Spirit of Truth is the Trail Guide.
I walk. He speaks. I listen. I write.
My prayer is that you will join me on this journey, as we yield to the gentle guidance of the Holy Spirit and His wise ways. This is the path I have chosen, and it has brought me a peace that I never thought possible, and I am eager to continue walking. Every footfall holds endless potential for both contentment and adventure. Please join me, and share in The Peace of the Path!
