Isaiah 42:16 Devotional

(You can click on the photo to enlarge it...There wasn't a great way to make it "big enough" with out bleeding over and being covered by the font on the side!)
As I was searching for barns the other day, I walked past this frozen area in the grass. Anything the sun was shinning on had defrosted, but this rut in the grass was still frozen. I noticed it, kept on walking, and then had to turn around. It struck my heart with a comparison to life. Sometimes we find ourselves in a rut, in a funk, in a mess and we don't realize how close the light is that can defrost us. When I came home, I wanted to find a verse that could go along with the feelings I had as I saw this rut and thought about the light. I found a website with "25 verses about light," and I started to read through. When I got to Isaiah 42:16, my eyes actually filled with tears. I knew it was the one. It wasn't exactly what I had thought or processed while I saw the rut, but it is so true to my life right now. I am walking through some unfamiliar paths right now, and have some rough places that I'm trying to get through. I was SO comforted by the truth that HE WILL turn my darkness into light, he WILL make rough places smooth and He WILL guide me in His way as I seek Him.
I so love the way that the Lord speaks to me through nature and uses photography as a tool to "bring things home" in my heart. I'm thankful for the promises of His Word and His heart for me and I'm excited to see where He brings my family and I'm trusting for the smoothing and the guidance through unfamiliar territory!
