Life can often feel like a journey through a dense, dark forest—uncertain, and at times, overwhelming. But amidst those shadows, there's a comforting truth: God's Word is like a trusty lamp, illuminating every step of the way. I've experienced moments when I didn't know which path to take or how to face the challenges before me. But as I opened the pages of the Bible, I found a guiding light that penetrated through the darkness of confusion and fear.

This verse reminds me of the countless times God's Word has spoken directly to my heart, giving me the guidance I desperately needed. It's as if the Scriptures are whispering, "This way, Bev. I've got you covered. Trust in Me."
