This image was inspired by a dream, a visit to Arches National Park, and scripture from Song of Songs 4:8 TPT which reads, "Now you are ready, my bride, to come with me as we climb the highest peak together. Come with me through the archway of trust".

There is an archway of trust my Lord beckons me toward. He calls to me and I am upon it. There were mountains, and there were valleys, and then, there was just Him. Both He and I stood at the archway together. My fear and shame surface, yet my love and devotion propel me forward. I am His, and He is mine. We are together and will be together. He does not leave me here. He will accompany me.
"The way is narrow", He says. "We will walk through lovely places together". He continued, "I will lead you to pleasant places. I will give you an abundance of My Spirit to guide you and give you wisdom. Trust in Me for My love for you is deep".
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life.
"Child, let Me lead. Do not strive in your own strength, but allow Me to lead you in loving kindness and with power and might. Through space and time, I have come to love you and to lead you. I will give you an abundance of My Spirit. Do not fear. I am with you. In the day and in the night, I will protect you. Come. Follow Me into the land of beauty and awe. A great adventure awaits you. I will give you angels to surround you and to accompany you. They will help lead you through the archway of trust. My Spirit will certainly lead you in all things. My way is the way of peace".
Lord, I see where my own way is not the best way. Lord, lead me in the way You want me to go. I will trust you. For I now see that Your way is best, because You love me deeply and have good for me. I no longer want to hinder myself, but allow You to work and move in my life.
"The way is unknown to you, but I know the way. Trust Me, and follow Me. I will not depart from your side. The sun and moon set and rise at My command. I made a path for them to follow. I will lead you. I have given you My Spirit. Use it. When you decide to choose Me and the life I have for you, you will run and soar like a horse over the plains. Break out, I say! Break out of your old ways and thinking! Follow Me! I will give you all you need. The ground on which you walk will be holy, for I am Holy and I am with you. I hear your prayers. They rise before Me, and I listen in love to you. The way is unknown to you, but I know the way. Follow Me. I will elevate you when you trust Me. The result will be many saved. The saints in heaven are praying for you, dear one. Cast aside your fear, and watch the river flow. The ground on which you walk will be blessed, for you have chosen to follow Me. I am with you and for you. I will not fail".
Lord, my spirit rises to You. I petition You. May You grant me wisdom and knowledge. May I trust and fear You. May I be humble before You. May I not fall into pride. Lead me strong now, Lord. For I place my trust in You.
"My Spirit of love will lead you in all things".
