In preparing for a night hike at the local nature center, I was with a group taking a hike on the trail in the dark. Walking through the woods on a familiar trail can take on new meaning without the guiding light of day. As we walked, with me in the front of the group, I started to make a wrong turn. When we are searching for a way in the darkness, we need to be careful to stay on the right path, even if we usually seem to know the way!
As we go through life, we will experience times of darkness. While we may know the right way, it can be obscured by the darkness of the world or in our lives. When we are struggling to find our way, we need to be confident in turning to God and allowing Him to guide us. When we talk to God through prayer and study His Word, He can provide a light for our paths. As we commit to learning from God, we can begin to see His Word as a lamp that lights up our path and guides us through the dark times of life!
Allow God to light up your path and guide you through His Word!
Thank You for always loving me and for providing a light to guide me through life. Help me to trust in Your way and to follow it everyday. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
