Daily Devotion, June 15, 2011 - Light Up Your Life
Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light for my path.
This summer, my church challenged our members to participate in reading through the New Testament, three chapters per day. Emily, our associate pastor, created a marvelous blog where she offers her thought-provoking observations on the scripture, how she can best apply it in her life, and leaves us with an uplifting prayer each day. Comments are encouraged, and I have been genuinely touched and impressed by the diverse and heart-felt impressions fellow church members have contributed. This experience has opened the eyes of my heart to see God's word in a fresh, new light.
What has equally accomplished this for me are the scripture reading assigned for each day in the Book of Common Prayer. As I read through them, always more than once, I pray that God will guide me to choose an appropriate verse upon which to meditate as I prepare each daily devotional for you. While I have done Bible studies in the past and am currently participating in one, I have never attempted anything so disciplined before in studying God's word. He has shined His lamp that I might stay on this path to which He has called me: sharing His word with you. May His words light up your life!
