Day Thirty-Six – The Love Dare: One Wife’s Journey


Back in October 2008...The scripture verse that touched me in particular today is -

Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

Love is God’s Word…

Thank You for Your Word, Lord. I truly love it! You’ve taught me so much through it. And I look forward to You continuing to teach me through it until the moment we meet face-to-face. In Christ’s most wonderful name. Amen.

That was then, this is now…

Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

God’s Word is love. It guides us through every aspect of life, including marriage. The Bible is one of the main ways God speaks to us. Treasure His Word.

This is the first verse of scripture I ever memorized, and it has become one of the foundational truths of my life. Spending time with the Lord is the most amazing thing you will ever do. I spend time with Him every day in prayer, reading, studying and meditating on the Bible, singing, admiring Him through nature. He speaks in many ways, but most clearly through His Word. At times, even what He says through His Word seems unclear, but as I draw nearer to Him, His Word becomes more concise.

Papa, I adore Your Word. I mean that in many ways since the Bible says that Jesus is the Word made flesh. I am always amazed that I can get to know Him (and You) better at any time in any place simply by opening this book and absorbing what it says – what You say. Thank You for giving me the Bible. Thank You for giving it to mankind. If it is Your will, please use me to make others love Your Word more than I do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
