One Step At A Time

An excited group of hikers trekked single file down the side of the Grand Canyon. The destination still some distance, night descended on the small band as the sun dipped over the rim. The guide switched on his flashlight and the rest of the group followed suit. With the experience of many trips, he led them to the safety of the camp below. The next morning, one of the hikers looked up at the narrow trail on the side of canyon wall and noticed all the unseen dangers in the shadows of night -- boulders, land slides and steep switch-backs. One misstep would have been disastrous. Yet, following that single shaft of light--one step at a time--had steered each one to shelter. In Psalm 119:105 we read, By your words I can see where I'm going; They throw a beam of light on my dark path. (The Message) God will lead us to safety and shelter if we listen to Him. Join me as we engage in the journey together, seeking to know Him better so that we can follow the light.
