Choose the Pattern

God is there and waiting for me to grow.
To learn what’s right, and saying no.
He’s given me a shelter of warmth and great protection.
Now it’s left up to me to choose the right direction.
Must I really go for something to only hurt me,
And take a chance that my blessing will desert me?
Maybe growing up is a thing of God showing us the way.
To give up what will destroy us before we throw love away.
I’m not sure of what I’m learning at this time.
But I feel as though God has something on my mind.
