And You Shall Direct My Paths

Following You, God… it’s a challenging path to keep up with.
If You were not there to pick me up when I stumble and fall,
Urge me onward when I hesitate in doubt,
And carry me when I am too weak to make it,
I would be so lost.
Many things appear along the journey and seem to suggest
I am going the wrong way,
But that is when I stop, close my eyes, and hold out my hand.
Thank You for always being faithful in taking my hand
And leading me through such blinding times,
Through darkness that can stump me and fill me with fear,
Around carefully set traps and unseen pit holes,
And away from such deceptive souls.
You preserve me, dear Lord, for Your perfect plan
And allow me to walk in Your Holy will.
I am honored to receive Your wise and loving correction.
I praise You for all that You do for me.
I pray that my obedience be eternal and prosperous,
That I might glorify the One who gave me life.
In Jesus name I pray… Amen.
