“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 40:8




I take joy in doing Your will, my God,

for Your instructions are written on my heart.


– Psalm 40:8 (NLT)






What joy fills us believers

when the temptation to satisfy our selfish needs and desires

is overcome with God’s help

and, instead, we consciously do His will.


We know what the Lord wants from us;

what He wants us to do;

the manner He wishes us to act in all circumstances.

We also know that He has sent us His Spirit

to guide us and help us through.


We know what the Lord commands

and we are well aware of His teachings,

all of which are there to see us through life’s maze

to the place that God has lovingly prepared for us in His heavenly Kingdom.


How sad it is

to be ready to consciously turn our backs on the Lord

and to trade-in everlasting joy

for short-lived self-satisfaction.


How uplifting and joyful it is

when we decide to do what is right in the eyes of the Lord,

and accept and do His will,

knowing and proclaiming that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.






O God of love and truth,

I do Your will – You fill me with joy!
