I received a photograph this morning — an inspirational poster.  Sent by a precious sister-in-Christ.  You have stirred her to encourage me every single day with one or more such exhortations.  How You have blessed me, Lord!

It was no “accident” that she sent this particular one to me today… was it, Lord?  I’m quite sure she was unaware of the significance it would have for me today of all days.  But not You, Lord.  You timed it perfectly.

It’s a photo of an open field.  A pathway through the field is marked by stepping stones. Upon closer inspection, however, the real nature of those “stones” becomes clear.

Words, words and more words.  Each stepping stone is an open Bible!

Your words, Lord… making a straight and sure path forward.

“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”  (Psalm 119:105) 

If only more of Your words had been spoken tonight, Lord…

If only we as a nation treasured Your words more…

If only I took Your words “to heart” even more than I already do…

“… if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Words, words and more words.

“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”  (Psalm 19:14)

Longing for my “walk” to better match my “talk”…
