Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
1 Kings 18:20-39
There are so many, and such varied, possibilities that open up in my life during any given day. Any one of these paths can lead either away from, or towards the light and life of God. The people of Elijah’s time found that journeying with Baal was blissful and ‘fun’ ... and were led day by day further and further away from the ‘living God’ of Abraham, Isaac and Israel. What paths are opening up before me today? Which one path is Jesus walking in truth and love? Christ Jesus, show me the path of life.
Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord. I have no good apart from you.” (Psalm 16:1)
Jesus, help me simplify my life by learning who you want me to be –and becoming that person.
St. Therese of Lisieux
