Three Word Wednesday - Light My Path



I may not talk much, but once I get a hold of a keyboard, 'words' seem to fly! That must be one of the reasons I love blogging.  Words are powerful and so often a thought comes to my mind and stirs my heart and I know it is something I need to hold on to.  Usually when that happens, I know a blog post is in the making!!  Three Word Wednesday is a fun way to share a condensed (very!!) version of what is churning in our hearts in 3 simple words.  

We all know life is ever changing.  The last few years, we've faced and walked and embraced  some big life changes.  Moving, a son's marriage and  a new daughter in law, teenage years..again, that shifting in the seasons of life.  

Any change requires a decision.  As a Christian, I believe God has the ultimate plan for good for our lives.  Over and over in the Bible, we hear how He sees, knows and directs us. When times of decision come, prayer is the best place to begin.  Without His guidance, my plans may fail, but when He directs my path, it is promised to work out for my good.

A recent morning we were in the car headed to school and work.  Taking my usual path and making a right turn, I was blinded by the sun behind me. It was so bright I could barely see ahead of me.  I tried to dodge my head but the sun filled the rear view mirror and both side mirrors, there was no dodging it or getting away from it. A verse immediately poppped into my mind...

"But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day."  Proverbs 4:18.  
WOW, what a word picture!!

God is so vast, so powerful, so massive, like the sun that morning shining all around me, He cannot be contained but is overwhelming.  When He shines His light to direct my path, there arises light in the darkness of confusion, hope in the midst of hurt, warmth, love and beauty. He illuminates and shines like none other.  That is the path I want to choose...His path!  

My prayer and my 3 words are Light My Path!  May be steps be ever guided by the Lord who will never lead me astray!
