Your Word, Lord

"My Word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path."

Psalm 119:105

As I sit here in my recliner I can look around and see 5 different translations of the Bible.   Within my reach is The Message, the NIV, and the NLT.  Over by Joel's chair is the Lutheran Bible translation and the RSV.  We also have a few others, KJB, the Living Bible, Amplified, and more.  Then there is the Internet which holds every verse at our fingertips!  We are certainly blessed.

When we need guidance, instruction, or clarity we can open up one of these precious books and find just what we need.  The scriptures plainly tell us that in the pages of THIS book is where we will find what we need to walk through life.  God's Word is a LAMP unto our feet so we can keep our feet from stumbling or keep ourselves from going astray.  It is the LIGHT we need to walk down that path, guiding us through life.  As children of the Light we have all we need in the Bible.

I am still learning about all the power within the words of the Bible.  Most people won't go anywhere in the house or out of it without their phone. Seems to me the Bible holds more importance than our phones!  I know for me that I need to carry it with me at all times.  Either literally or memorized in my mind. Right there to guide me, instruct me and help clarify what I am hearing or reading. 

When I think about how many places in our world the Bible is not available, or must be hidden from those who would try to destroy it, I am humbled and grateful for all the Bibles within my reach to guide my way.  We are so very blessed.

Amen Renee. You made me stop and think again. We do carry our phone, but seldom our Bibles when we are out and about. Of course, we can read it on our phone if we want... One of our friends at church uses his phone Bible all the time. Strange but true.

Blessings to you Renee,
