Words from the Heart for Wednesday March 24th, 2021
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.
Psalm 119:105 (NLT)
Lighting My Path
One of the most beautiful trails in Canada is found in Banff, Alberta. On the 1.8 kilometre Sunshine Meadows hike you are surrounded by lush meadows, wildflowers and spectacular views of the surrounding peaks. Add on the 5-kilometre loop extension from Rock Isle Lake to Grizzly and Larix Lakes and you have an easy day hike. Enjoy a picnic lunch with views of Mount Assiniboine – known as the Matterhorn of the Canadian Rockies. These are two of Canada’s most popular paths.
Little children don’t mind falling. Little boys love to chase each other and tussle, often falling and getting right back up unharmed. On the other hand, the greatest fear of seniors is falling. Brittle bones break easily and head injuries can be life threatening. So, seniors are very careful when they walk and often use a cane or walker for security. If this is so in the physical world, it is also true in the spiritual. We so easily get tripped up by temptation and fall into sin. The spiritual repercussions are eternal. How can we avoid tripping when temptation comes our way? King David knew something about the results of tripping over temptation and he gives some great truth in Psalm 119:105: “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” There is power in God’s Word, the Bible. When we read it, the Holy Spirit takes it and plants it deeply in our hearts and souls. There it lights our lives, so that we can always see where we are going, and helps us avoid tripping and falling into sin. Spend time in His Word today.
These have been words from the heart.
