Synopsis: The principle message of "Lamp to My Feet" by Frances Smith is that God never promises us a sweeping floodlight that will show us the whole picture, but He does promise us a lamp to our feet so we can see the next step. We have to learn to trust Him to do that, and take the next step on faith.
Additional messages include: We are all here for a purpose; God uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things; By staying vigilant and watchful, we will find opportunities to do God's work; Where do you go, and what do you do, when you want to get in touch with God; God doesn't always answer prayers in the way we expect Him to--but He answers; The Lord is never finished with us and therefore there are always new, unexpected blessings just down the road; Nobody is protected from life's storms: the key is to weather and embrace them; Our most challenging and painful times are those we learn and grow from; Even when you have no idea what lies ahead, God will lead the way.
Critique: Inspired and inspiring, "Lamp to My Feet" is unreservedly recommended reading and especially commended to the attention of all members of the Christian community regardless of denominational affiliations. While appropriate for church, seminary, and community library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that "Lamp to My Feet" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $7.99).
