When our kids go to camp we make sure and send a flashlight with them. Its so they have that extra assurance that they can see where they are going at night. This light allows them to see the immediate path ahead, not the whole path, just a few feet in front of them. We want them to be safe and not stumble and fall over some unforeseen object.
As we journey through this thing called life, we too need a flashlight. This is not a floodlight, it is one that lights just enough of our path so we don't stumble and fall. Our flashlight is the Bible.
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
God's word is enough light to help me through my days. Lately I have had a wee bit of added stress in my life. Moving will do that to a person. There are days I let that stress build up and its not pretty. But what I am discovering is that the days I spend some quality time in God's word and praying, those are the days that are easier to walk through. We are still waiting for a buyer to come, and there are days I wish I had a flood light so I could see far enough down the path to see who that buyer will be. But, for now God is lighting my path just enough to help me get through each day. His word calms me down and assures me that He is in control...He knows what He is doing. I just need to stay grounded in His word and keep heading down the path He has chosen for me.
How about you? Don't forget to use your flashlight today!!!
