Scripture Sunday – Psalm 119:105

8 Jan

So, by now you know that I’m participating in Mrs. Hargrave’s Project Scripture. This past week was the first week of scripture memorization, and it was so refreshing! I decided I would take a moment to reflect each Sunday on how that week’s verse applied to my life and share it with you. Here goes.

“Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” -Psalm 119:105

I have always been a planner. No, that’s putting it too lightly. I’m an architect. I carefully craft every detail of my life, following the plan I’ve made to the letter with (I’m ashamed to admit) little regard for what God’s plan for me might be. Now, I have had my moments of complete reckless abandonment when I let God take the wheel, and those moments have turned out to be the best ones of my life. But for some reason, even after God shows me how much better His plan is, I slowly return to my old blueprints.

Well, if 2011 taught me anything, it’s that I’m not in control and I never have been. So, I couldn’t have picked a better verse to begin 2012 with. To me, this verse is a confession to God:

“I know that I’m completely in the dark. I know that I don’t have all the answers. But I do know that You do have all the answers and Your Word is the lamp that will light the way. Now, I know it won’t light the entire path so that I can see the finish line, but it will light one step at a time. So if I just faithfully put one foot in front of the other, relying wholly on You, I have nothing to worry about.”

This is my prayer for this year. I can’t wait to see what next week brings!

    I have a must read to enhance your study & add to your prayer life- The Prayer of Jesus by Dr. Ken Hemphill, former President of Southwest Seminary & a pastor of one of the largest churches in Norfolk VA. It will change the way you look at the Lord’s prayer, how & why you pray. A very easy read. Love your thoughts & comments.
