the lamp letters

Dear Abba,

Your laws are not simply rules that hang around my neck like impossible yokes. To walk in step with you is to have your goodness and mercy surround me like a song.  

Keep me steadfast and safe in these liberating boundaries. I delight in you with this heart you have resurrected, as I continue to discover freedom in your laws. 

I have asked myself countless times how I can keep my life pure and on course. The answer remains the same: By living according to your word, the lamp that guides my feet as I take one step after another. 

Transform me by the renewing of my mind. I lay my life down that I may find it. 

May I never stop exploring the mystery of who you are and drawing closer to your heart.

Yours.
