The Path

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”  Proverbs 3:5-6

“Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established.” Proverbs 4:26

We travel the path
before us
The one established
at the beginning of creation
and became ours
when we accepted
God’s Son as Our Lord
Our Savior
Our Redeemer
Our Master and King

We travel the road
of heartache and sadness
and anger
of love and joy
of life and death
The one destined
at the beginning of sin
and became ours
when God’s blessing turned
and Adam and Eve’s disobedience
became God’s curse on us all.

We travel the highways
and the byways
We come to forks
We consider
should we go left
or right
or straight ahead
or should we go back?

We decide.
If the path we are on
is that one where Jesus
is The Way, The Truth
and The Light
He will be with us
as we go
when we seek His guidance
for  every step.

We travel
We stay for a while
along the route
Then we move on
This is not our
permanent home
We are only sojourners,
a wayward people.
Our home is in Heaven.

We travel the path
We listen to His wisdom
We do His good will
We seek out others
to travel the road too

We are heading home.
