Spiritual Nourishment: ‘Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet’

I happened to listen to Amy Grant’s introduction to this worship song, and it struck me that being a Christian performing artist–a Christian artist, mind you, using one’s art to deliver God’s message–carries with it a burden that cannot be shouldered lightly. People are going to tell you their troubles. And you’re going to wind up praying silently, “O Lord, what can I say? What can I tell this person? And what if I say the wrong thing?”

Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet, taken from Psalm 119, is one of my very favorite worship songs, here performed by Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. Now it’ll be with me all day–and I don’t mind at all.

See you when I get back from the nursing home.
