The Path

Posted on Updated on

Since the beginning of the year, God has showed me how he has always had my steps laid out. All I have to do is follow that path.

Today’s featured poem for Poetry Tuesday is about that walk.

The Path

Where is my life going?
I wonder from time to time.
Where is my life going?
I look to Jesus, and to the path that is mine.
Life with purpose, that is the goal.
Peace that passes understanding,
Peace for my soul.
Run the race with patience.
Run the race to win.
He set the course,
I just have to begin.
Step by step, day by day,
Seeking after Him,
Walking in His way.
Waiting for him to speak,
For by the spirit, I am lead
Waiting on Him
And by His word fed,
His time I borrow
For he redeems the time
And I continue on
Walking this path of mine.

Psalms 16:1-11 NKJV
“Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust. O my soul, you have said to the Lord, “You are my Lord, My goodness is nothing apart from You.” As for the saints who are on the earth, “They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.” Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god; Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, Nor take up their names on my lips. O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You maintain my lot. The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Yes, I have a good inheritance. I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel; My heart also instructs me in the night seasons. I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope. For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
