About Stepping in the Light blog

The moment we received Jesus as Saviour, we stepped into an incredible journey—a lifelong adventure of walking with God. Proverbs 4:18 describes this journey: “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.”

This is a delightful path with both joys and valleys, blessings and dangers. But Jesus Himself is our Guide, and in His presence is fullness of joy.

At times it may seem our path is growing darker as we face the unknown or even dark trials, but the path we are following is not one of external circumstances—that path is planned by God, and he wants us to trust Him for it. Our real pursuit is Christ, and since He is light, our path is indeed as the shining light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

This blog is meant to be a type of journal of the journey—a simple, and hopefully thought-provoking, record of truths the Lord is teaching me and ways God is working in my heart and life.

About Monica

The Lord has given me the privilege to serve as an editor with Striving Together Publications (a ministry of Lancaster Baptist Church, Pastor Paul Chappell) in Lancaster, California. I’m thrilled and overwhelmed that the Lord allows me to have part in this ministry and to serve in a capacity that I love. God gives us everything we need to serve Him…and then He blesses us for what, in reality, He does through us.

(Note: from 2002–2008, I edited Stepping in the Light magazine. No new issues are being published; however, some back issues are still available from our old site.)
