I was sitting up late.
Later than I ought to have been.
Praying and thinking, wondering and dreaming.
Where will the next years take me?
Where will I work?
What about college?
What could I do to further the Kingdom?
How can I glorify God in everything?
The questions weighed down, so I prayed them, and asked God to show me the path that I should take.
Prayed, closed the Bible and blue journal and went to bed.
The next night, two days ago now,
I sat on that same barstool at the kitchen counter,
later than I should’ve been,
First I read Matthew 5-7,
which got me thinking about Psalm 119,
the verse where it says
“How can a young man keep his way pure? By walking according to your word.”
So I started to turn the pages in that direction and was almost there when I saw, starred, highlighted, circled.
That verse I learned in preschool.
“Your Word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path.”
And then it all clicked for me-
how could I have missed this, this verse I have known since a young age?
God’s word- the holy, infallible Word, inspired by God and totally true-
This Word gives the answers.
For the Word, CHRIST, was with God, in Him is LIGHT,
light unto my path.
