THE PATH

Proverbs 2:20 “Thus you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous.
21 For the upright will live in the land, and the blameless will remain in it;
22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it."
(NIV)

****

Proverbs 3:1 "My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart,
2 for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
(NIV)

************

THE PATH that I must follow,
It’s unlike any other;
Not THE PATH that has been followed,
By my father, mother…sister or my brother.

Each one of us is made unique,
Only one of its kind;
Not even identical twins…totally alike,
Of this…I did find.

I didn’t have a clue,
As I was thrust into this world;
I thought that things just happened,
Until His plan began to be unfurled.

Bumps and scrapes…disappointments,
When I did the best that I could;
And, there were many times that I,
Did what others said I “should”.

But, sooner or later…in each life,
We take the time to understand;
Just what it is all about,
And, we ask God…what is His plan.

For we know there must be a reason,
Why we go through the things we do;
Surely, a lesson that we must learn,
Not just one…but quite a few!

We begin to see a pattern,
Like a road map…it begins to unfurl;
It’s THE PATH that I must follow,
The one mapped-out…for this girl!

Oh, there were many times,
When from THE PATH…I did wander;
These times were to my detriment,
I had to stop…sit down and ponder.

But, God was always faithful,
To steer me back on track;
He was more than enough,
For all the things that I did lack.

More and more…I sought His will,
His plan…especially for me;
And, I learned that He knows what is best,
It’s THE PATH that He has planned…you see!
