I think I've known that verse my whole life. I can almost hear the voices of those sweet little old lady Sunday School teachers from my childhood encouraging me to hide those words in my heart.
And I did.
Oh, I probably couldn't tell you right off the bat the chapter and verse at any given moment, but the words are there.
Those are the first words that came to mind this morning as I pondered this post. I repeated it a few times. I thought about what it means to me. I let it simmer there for a little bit.
In a like manner, when our days are bright, when all is going well, we may not seek the Lord and His Word so desperately. But when night falls, and darkness surrounds us...when troubles come, we become like the hound digging frantically for a bone buried underground.
Oh that we would carry His Word so close to our hearts, keep it mulling in our minds during the "daylight" hours so that when the sunlight fades it already burns brightly.
Have you turned on The Lamp today?
