“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” – Psalm 119:105
Just as we need light to direct our path in the darkness so that we do not stumble and fall; so also do we need the light of His word, which is our instruction manual for right living.
As we take time to treasure in our hearts all of the joys and blessings that accompany this wonderful Christmas season, may we also anticipate with eager expectation, what He has for us in the coming year. Whatever that “it” is for us as individuals, “it” will be more readily known and navigated if we are spending time in His word. When we know His word, we better understand His heart. As we better understand His heart, our own heart becomes better equipped to hear His.
For those of you who have been following for a while, I am pleased to pass on to you with praise, that the results from my MRI were perfectly normal, and the most recent medication that I have tried to treat my migraines, is working wonderfully! At last, I
am feeling very much myself again. Another blessing for those who have been following a while, is that baby Izzy, who was born on June 1st, five weeks prematurely, is thriving and quite a beauty. In fact, the photo I am including is one from my most recent cuddle session with this little cutey!
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the great gift of Your word. Thank You that as we study it, Your Holy Spirit teaches our hearts what You need us to know. Thank You that You are our light in every darkness, and that in You, there is not even so much as a single shadow! Help each of us to be intentional to invest our time with You, in Your word, and in a community of believers. May we be transformed to reflect more clearly, Your light of love to those in darkness. Light our path Lord, and teach us to trust so that we will walk boldly where You ask us to go. May we do so joyfully, with words of worship in our heart. Amen.
