light is a good thing

'Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.' - Psalm 119:105  It's pretty tough to operate in the dark.  The last couple of days I have learned this lesson.  My grass has gotten pretty tall and I realized I better get out there and do something about that before I get a nice love letter from our Home Owner's Association.  So I tried to time it where I could get maximum coolness (87 degrees vs 100 degrees) and just enough daylight.  So I went out there a little after 8:00.  My last couple of passes with the mower were just straight up in the dark.

I wasn't totally sure if I was getting all the grass, I hit a few random dog toys, and by the time I was done it was completely dark and I had no sense of whether or not I truly accomplished the task.  It's the same way with our lives.  When we operate from our own feelings, ideas and logic it's like walking in the dark and continually stubbing our toe and running into things.  When we operate by learning God's Word and applying it, we have more confidence about taking that next step and we tend to bring less pain to ourselves and those with whom we interact.  So I challenge you to bring some light to your situation today by reading the Bible and obeying what it says.

Striving to walk more in the light,
