“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105
During a particularly rough time in my life, I started writing comforting scriptures on index cards so that I could access them as needed. I was in a great amount of pain and constantly needed the reassurance of the word of God.
I would read through them as many times a day to simply get through the day-sometimes more than twenty times. It didn’t matter time or place either-stop lights, work, grocery store, doctor’s office, home-whenever I needed God, I grabbed my cards.
If you look closely, you can see how worn and tear stained they are as I REALLY put them to use. I can’t begin to tell you how these simple cards were a lifeline to me.
The scriptures truly served as a lamp to guide me through some very hurtful and treacherous terrain that I was traversing. They reminded me that no matter what I go through that God loves me with an everlasting love. I did nothing to deserve it, He just does.
The words of our Lord was like that of a healing earthquake. Though my world was tossed upside down (the earthquake) He bought healing in the midst of the tumult.
Won’t He do it?!
