as all rivers flow into the sea
time stands still like placid lakes
unmarred by dirt, death and decay
little black dots float upon the retina
as a white sheet of nothingness invades
can’t see a thing, the road ahead blank
fear sets in with a double beat thumping
blindly searching for the curve ahead
screams erupt through tear filled eyes
pleading for help from God on high
“Your word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path”¹
A shaft of light beams through the fog
lighting the way that once was gone
vision clears in the light of day
God thank You for this gift to point the way.

For a few months now, just about every single day the Lord has brought this verse in front of me in some way whether it was in a devotion I read, a picture on Facebook, someone sent it to me for encouragement or any number of other ways and it has become obvious God wants me to pay attention to this.
Lately my brain has been as thick as that foggy blanket. My thoughts have been scattered. My heart hammering out of my chest some days wondering what in the world I think I’m doing and who am I to be writing anything to anyone.
Commit. That word leaps off the page, into my mind and I cannot shake it.
What does it mean to commit? In what ways/areas in my life does God want for me commit to Him?
These are the questions that plague me. These are questions I want answers to.
It’s a huge step to take; yet, I am excited to see the path that God has for me this year.
As we commit our lives to Christ, He will show us which way to go, He will establish our thoughts and in His presence we will find the joy we’ve been seeking.
What word do you feel God is giving you this year? Do you have the courage to make it a focus in your life and see where He will take you with that word?
hope you will join me in this because I think it will greatly change
our walk with the Lord as we read His word every day. In this way, His
thoughts will be established in us.
