The Path Christ Chooses
As we leave 2019 behind and step into 2020, let us set our hearts aright, and my poem below expresses this desire.
The path Christ chooses for me-
Through valleys and up peaks,
Through bush and rolling meadows-
Is the path that I must seek.
For should I, in my foolishness,
Think only I know best
Risk getting lost and losing all,
Bereft of manna and rest.
He longs that I not walk alone,
He walks ahead of me,
Cheering me on, lifting me up,
He sends along my pilgrim path
Others who follow Him,
That we may journey side by side
And honour Him as King.
Are we not so richly blessed?
Yet let us not forget
To sound the gospel call with love
For blessings should be shared!
