Walking in the Light

Well, it has been three weeks since my knee surgery
and I have to say that I am doing
much better than this precious little guy!
My husband was able to catch this wonderful photo shot
of a cow elk and her very new baby near our home.
Don't you just wonder - in animal language-
what that mother is instructing her baby to do?
How beautiful the way she stands near
as the little one scrambles to get up
and continue on their journey.
Proverbs 4:12
"Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go:
Keep her, for she is your life".
Wisdom is a journey of many steps,
a path upon which a person openly receives truth.
A heart that is willing to hear and receive
the instructions on wisdom
is a heart bent towards God and His Word.
Jesus spoke of many who had
ears to hear but did not listen.
Proverbs 4:18-19
"But the path of the just is like the shining sun,
that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
The way of the wicked is like darkness:
They do not know what makes them stumble".
The way of light and the way of darkness
is clearly marked out for us in God's Word.
Those who seek wisdom
 are able to discern-and keep discerning-which path is safe.
At times we may loose our footing
as we walk in the pathway of light,
but God is there to illuminate the problem for us,
to guide us-to help us-to encourage us-
and to pick us up when we stumble and fall.
But those who stumble in the darkness
have no way of discerning
what has tripped them up.
Just like this little guy. Had he stayed on better ground
rather that stepping onto this black top
he likely would not have lost his footing.
Are we no different?
Sometimes we stray off the pathway of Light
causing us to loose our footing
and then we stumble and fall.
God would have us to be in the Word,
so as to have a heart and mind that is discerning.
God provides the wisdom.
Anyone can acquire it if they have a heart to pursue it!
Our precious Heavenly Father.
Thank you for Your Word that instructs us in wisdom.
Cause us to have a heart that is bent towards reading it daily,
and help us to apply Your principles to our every day life.
Thank you, for always being there when we stumble and fall,
and with a tender loving hand, ready to pick us up,
and nudge us onward for Your glory.
I would like to say thank you dear friends for your prayers on my behalf.
My recovery has gone well. To God be the glory!

I am so glad that you are recovering nicely. That photo that your hubby took is just precious. It reminds me that we are protected and guided by our "parent" if we will just allow that to happen in our lives...and although we can't hear what that mama is saying to her baby -that baby "listens" with its heart---just like we are supposed to do. xo Diana

What a precious moment your husband caught in that photo! I'm happy to hear that you are recovering well. I'm blessed reading your encouragement to be in the Word. It is of so much importance!

My heart is totally melting right now - that is just precious! You could start charging tourists to drive through your driveway to see wildlife :) It's be like going to the bear park in South Dakota or even Yellowstone. . .

Great post, mom :) As always, your words hit a chord in my heart and encourage my walk with the Lord - thank you. It's good to have you back on your blog.

I love you and hope you are having a great day!

Prayers for you to continue to heal. Looks like you're able some quality time with the Lord and gaining new wisdom everyday.

A baby deer ran in front of my car the other day. I think I would have lost control to keep from hitting him. His little legs would not hold him up. Sometimes I feel like that little deer. Only held up by my Father's care.

Welcome back, Debbie! Glad you are on the mend. I'm sure you'll be up and back to normal soon.

As always your words and wisdom touch my heart!!

I just emailed you and I am so happy to read you are doing good and feeling better since your surgery.

Have a wonderful evening and weekend.

Beautiful post, Debbie. And I love the photo! A couple days ago I saw a newborn foal. Such a sweet sight, all new and wobbly.

May you have a speedy and complete recovery!

Hi Debbie! I'm so glad to hear that you are doing well! I know that knee rehab is very vigorous, and takes so much energy...kind of like the walking of this little one across the road :)
I join you in your prayers for wisdom. Such a precious pearl, how I need his grace for it. I thank him that he is such a tender Father.
Blessings and grace to you as you continue to heal.

So pleased to hear that you are doing well after your surgery. It takes time. The photo is really something. I will have to share it with my hubby when he gets back from Idaho.
Your blog post is lovely and food for thought.
Much love,

SarahGeorge said...

Its good to know that your recovery is going well. That is a very cute picture :)

Patty Sumner said...

I am so thankful Debbie for your stopping by at my blog.. I miss so many great posts that come through my feed simply because I am not on blogger everyday.. You always have such inspiring and encouraging truth..I love the book of Proverbs...It is full of simple truths... I do believe in todays society..even in the church we are missing hearts who go after truth..who seek God regularly through His Word..It is life for us.. We cannot understand or discern how to walk in this life as believers without it..I want to say thank you for your time of studying and sharing.. Keep it up.. I love reading input from believers who are "going after" truth.. Blessings for a great day and continued healing!

I had been on a blog break when you had your surgery and did not know, but now I wish you love and healing and a speedy recovery! What a lovely post and oh, so true. Sometimes it is difficult to stay focused on the right path, but with faith we can always find the lighted way. Your words are balm to a world-weary soul. Blessings and love xo Karen
