Bread for the Journey




Many of us memorized Psalm 119:105 a long time ago . . .
be it in Sunday School or at Pioneer Girls . . .
or maybe it was given to us at a significant time, such as our baptism.

Recently I had to think on what this verse means to me right now
at this time in life . . . why is it important to me?
I mulled about how I can find verses to help me when I'm fearful, 
need comfort or encouragement.
I thought about how God's word tells us where it all began, 
it tells us that we are not here by chance, that we are valued.
It tells us about those who chose to trust in God and those who did not.
It tells us how God provided salvation for us and
of the hope we have in Him.

But, my thoughts kept going and I realized why this verse has significance.
God's word is timeless.
What that means is that in this world, where things keep changing,
God's word stays the same.
His word is a light that exposes truth,
giving us a rock to stand on - an anchor for our soul.

In times when it's difficult to distinguish right from wrong
may God's word be a light for our path.

  2. As an old PG myself, I recognize this verse. It has stuck with me all these years,and whenever I read it I think of PG meetings and Camp Cherith--such good memories.
