Thy Word is a Lamp Unto My Feet, Unto My Path, Sweet Jesus

I love you so, Blessed Jesus. A truer statement cannot be typed by my fingers,

This last day of January, 2022, I am just a few months shy of my 67th birthday. July, 2022. This marks the 50th year since my baptism into the Family of God. To type that ‘out loud’ makes it somehow seem even longer than reality. Three-quarters of my life since I first turned my life over to Jesus Christ. My path, shamefully, has been a winding, rocky trail filled with adventure, full of mountain-top experiences separated by times I wallowed in the valley of doubt and self-absorption. As beautiful a sight as it is to keep my eyes focused on my Lord, I looked away too many times to count. Each time I looked away–no matter the length of time–Jesus Christ ‘left a light on’ for me to return. To say that I’m grateful for the Light is an understatement.

I’ve found that Light made my footing sure, all the way back to the feet of Jesus Christ.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalms 119:105 (KJV)

“The Word of God strikes at every wrong trait of character, molding the whole man, internally and externally, abasing his pride and self-exaltation, leading him to bring the Spirit of Christ into the smaller as well as the larger duties of life. It teaches him to be unswerving in his allegiance to justice and purity, and at the same time always to be kind and compassionate.

The appreciation of the Bible grows with its study. Whichever way the student may turn, he will find displayed the infinite wisdom and love of God. To him who is truly converted, the Word of God is the joy and consolation of the life. The Spirit of God speaks to him, and his heart becomes like a watered garden (E. G. White, The Signs of the Times, June 25, 1902).

I love you so, Blessed Jesus. Especially for bringing me into Light. — FM
