Okay Google . . .

"Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path." Psalm 119:105 NIV

When I was a child (many years ago, and long before Google, Siri or Alexa), I remember my dad would always keep two to three road maps in the glove compartment of our car. These maps had a full diagram of the United States on one side and a map of a particular state on the other. If these maps got torn and/or worn out from excessive use, he could always purchase another one at a gas station for $1.00.

Years later, when I got married, my husband and I would buy an Atlas Book of Maps at a bookstore and keep it under the front seat of our car. When we were going on a road trip, we would take out that book of maps to read and study it to determine which route we would take. We even made notes to remind us which town we would have a turn off-or a junction to take.

On these trips, my husband would drive and I would be the map keeper. If we missed our turn or got turned around in unfamiliar territory, I would locate the town we were in on the map and see what road to take to get us back on track.

God has provided us with a road map to help us through our journey of life on this earth, his Word, the Bible.

We can find direction just by reading and studying God’s Word. What's good about this map for life is, it doesn’t matter how far off-track we may be or how old or young we are, we can start following his direction now.

Are you ready for the challenge to find your way?


Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.

Psalm 119:130 The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

Psalm 25:4 Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths.

Prayer: Father, it is so easy to lose our way if we are confused on where we are going or have gotten turned around on the way. Help us to seek your guidance for our lives and trust your Word.


About the author: Today’s author has been a teacher of the Word to both children and adults for more than thirty years. She made it her mission to lay a solid, Christ-centered foundation for her children and grandchildren, instilling in them the importance of a personal relationship with Christ and the value of prayer. It is my pleasure to introduce guest author, and my mother, Idotha Oracion.
