We found ourselves in wilderness

Two thousand years ago

And knew the road to our success

Did need God’s love to grow !

A man he traveled on a road, it was to Damascus

His name was Saul when he began, though now he’s Paul to us

While on that journey long ago there was a lesson learned

You can’t take credit for good deeds that you have not yet earned !

 

 

LONG LAST ROAD ( 2016 ) 2016/02/11

I have wept alone but a million tears

And battled with close to a thousand fears

I have argued in vain a hundred ways

And struggled and lost for too many days.

I have wakened often in darkest night

The victim of unreasonable fright

I have said my prayers aloud to my God

And have asked for aid and a gentle prod.

I am sure that He will always be there

Through the bleakest night or a day quite fair

I shall beg His help to carry my load

And to stay with me on this last long road !

 

I’M NOT LOST ( 2015 ) 2015/07/30

I have trod a perilous path in my search for the Lord

And have paid a precious price much more than I could afford

I left my old world behind in search of His peace and grace

Knowing well in advance that I can never see His face.

Now the love of the Lord is beside me where ere I go

And the moments that He guides me are what I’ve come to know

The road is longer than I thought, much greater is its cost

It doesn’t matter what it takes without Him I am lost !

 

ROCKY ROAD ( 2015 ) 2015/07/29

Sometimes the road is rocky, sometimes it’s dusty too

Sometimes it’s filled with traffic, sometimes there’s but a few

Along life’s road there’s trouble perhaps no happy end

This is no simple matter for each must find a friend

With all the grit and dirt, the rocks, pebbles and each stone

God never meant for us that we travel on alone !

 

GOD’S WATCHDOGS ( 2015 ) 2015/04/29

Sometimes I think I hear the angels sing

Quite like the sound of gentle whispering

I’ve never heard the flutter of their wings

Though it might add to our imaginings !

I do not think I’ll ever get to see

Those angel faces watching over me

There in the shadow of our ecstasy

Where they are veiled in anonimity.

I am prepared to trust they are all here,

God’s helpful watchdogs with their mission clear

To seek and find as each last path appears

The journey follows without mortal fears !

 

INJUSTICE ( 2014 ) 2014/08/09

Winds of fate at the edge of space

Whisper sounds that are out of place

They signal all that we are lost

With none to count the total cost !

We need renew our faith again

Or find a path to where and when

This chore appears to be a task

Perhaps too much for us to ask!
