I start walking backwards, attempting to get off this path. Keep walking; I promise to never leave your side. Be confident; my Word will light your steps and ultimately lead your path.
What did my slightly dramatic movie scene about Psalm show me? I cannot be so focused on God lighting the path of my future that I neglect to let Him light the footsteps of my present. I must obediently shed light on what God wants to illuminate, not just what I want to highlight. What areas do I need to grow in? What opportunities present themselves to tell others about the Lord?
Who should I surround myself with now that will encourage and challenge me? Have I been focusing more on what others are doing around me instead of focusing on what God wants to do in and through me? Have I been neglecting my family or those closest to me in pursuit of my dreams, job advancement, or ministry opportunities?
We can, instead, rest in knowing He will reveal things to us in His orchestrated time. When we trust the Lord and allow the lamp of His Word to guide our feet, He is faithful to provide light for our future path. Karen Harmon is a wife, homeschooling mother, and physical therapist.

Godl bless you. Pst Chika August 29, at am. Grateful for this and so timely.
Recently I had began to really look inwards and appreciate the present, no matter how slow it seems. We so get focused on the future, running after it as if life depends on it. Whereas God wants us in tune with what He is doing now.
