Having once been lost in a smothering fog while fishing in the Gulf of Alaska, I know the importance of a reliable compass. Therefore I chose to trust God’s Word, even when disappointment and loss make it impossible for me to understand His ways. And like an unerring compass, His Word guides me safely through the fog of my pain and confusion.

Psalm 119:105

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

Lord Jesus, may we ever hide Your Word in our hearts against the day when disappointment and despair tempt us to lose our way. In Your holy name I pray. Amen.
