You Light My Path

I could hardly sleep last night because of the anticipation of trying out my new Petzl Tikka Plus 2 Headlamp at 5:30 am this morning.  I went with this particular model because it had great reviews and was very affordable.  Until this morning, I had never run with a headlamp.  On several recent morning runs, I ran along the unlit path blindly–hoping that I did not trip or step on something.

BUT….this morning, thanks to my Petzl Tikka Plus 2 Headlamp, that ALL CHANGED!  I could see!  I could see well!  Now, I couldn’t see everything because it was dark, but I could see the path well.

I was reminded of the fact that God’s Word is like a headlamp.  It lights our path so we can see where to take the next step.  God does not always show us the entire horizon in life, but He promises to “direct our steps” and He promises to “light our path.”  I have personally found God to be very faithful to those promises in my life.

“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”  Psalm 119:105 (NIV)

“If the Lord delights in a man’s way, He makes his steps firm.”  Psalm 37:23 (NIV)

    So was this an advertisement or infomercial for Petzl Tikka Plus 2 Headlamps? If so, I’ll throw out another endorsement. Michael and I backpacked for a while before moving to Kentucky (Michael more than me, no doubt!) and so headlamp shopping was SERIOUS business. We, too have Petzl headlamps and LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them.

    Thank you for the reminder that the road IS ROCKY…it IS PERILOUS…it can be dangerous. God doesn’t guarantee us the smooth road…but He does shine a light on the path so that we can avoid the pitfalls.

    Not intended to be, but I guess it kinda was. I just get excited about things and often share too much information that only matters to me. God is good and praise Him that He does shine on our path.
