His Word....Our Hope

This morning I was writing in my journal and I saw a verse....a very special verse....from the Psalms.

Psalm 119:105
Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

The morning after I prayed and asked Jesus to forgive me and come into my life I woke up thinking this verse.  I don't even know how to tell you what I felt that morning when the Lord gave that verse to me!  At that point I had no idea where to find it or how true the words of this verse are.  But years and three months later....I know more and more....every moment of true this verse is and what hope and strength can be found in His Word.  My study Bible says this about it....

The Lords word is a lamp that provides perspective, hope, and guidance in darkness.  Even more, this light gives life.

Oh how true this is!  Even though at times I let myself get so caught up in the things of life....and I set aside the things I know I need to do....that when I come crawling back spent and broken....God still speaks and comforts me through His Word.  Isn't that just like Him?  Welcoming us with open strength....healing....forgiveness....if we only just give our cares....burdens....sorrows....all over to Him!  Thank You....Thank You....Thank You Lord for Your love....kindness....grace and mercy in my/our time of need.

This morning I have so many feelings and thoughts that I just don't know where to go from here with this post. So....I will just finish with a prayer....

O Father I come to You this morning with much thankfulness in my heart.  Because of You I know there is hope for the day.  Knowing that You are with and friends....brings comfort to me this morning.  I don't know what this day holds for any of us but I do know that You are the one in charge of this day.  So right now Father I want to just give You all of my cares about this day.  All of the burdens I carry for the road that lies ahead for us.  I just ask you to ease the sorrows that are being felt and help us to live knowing that You will grant us grace for every moment that lies ahead. 
Thank You for everything that You have done in  my life and thank You for my family and friends that mean so much to me.  Help all of us to live every moment for You.  Please speak to the hearts of the family....and my friends....that don't know Jesus as their Savior.  Thank You for listening to my hearts cry this morning.  In Jesus name I pray....Amen

May your day be blessed.....

"until we see JESUS....face to face"
