CHOICES AND CHANGES
Forgive me God, for every time I turned the wrong way,
for every consequence was a price I had to pay
that would lay me so very low
to change the paths I should go.
The anguish of lessons learned after turning around,
the sorrows, heartache, losses, choices still did surround.
The love that bled,
things that were said,
as a bitter cold wind entered our hearts
and turned away from your spirit parts.
The maps we followed
left our souls hollowed,
bruised, battered, so solitary from strife
until on our knees, pleading hard to lift us back to life,
to again trust God, thy heavenly guidance let us seek
in peace, patience, blessings and truth, to render us meek.
I abandoned the ways of my own,
looking to Jesus again in prayerful mode.
God again led another maze of journeys of fate,
teaching me more daily that on He I must wait
to hear his urging and whispers of faith,
to follow his footsteps and tread his steps however few,
one by one so when I stumble, slip, and fall,
with His arms will He lift me, my name will he call.
His gentle presence fills with renewal of hope so enters my soul,
As the wind of his spirit takes me from earthly toll,
To guide, restore, comfort, erase all errors not of his way.
Forgiven and with joy he will fill my every day,
Reassured, cleansed so I now know His reasons
for the roads I was led through every season.
Side by side we will travel in the light,
Past highways now gone, new paths so right.
My Jesus is my focus solely in my sight
even in the clouds of darkest deep night
does He reveal his compassion with all His might
and the love that enlightens our imperfect life
but shapes our destiny as He meant it to be.
