In the days that we live, we certainly have
Directions abundant, atlas and sat nav!
There’s signposts and road signs to di-rect our feet
Through copious mazes of path, road or street.
There’s even advice on high-tech mobile phone
To ensure we are never left lost or alone,
The AA route finder, or smart Google map,
Will direct correctly, avoiding mishap.
We should not get lost – of maps there’s no dearth,
Our every position’s marked on Google Earth!
And so, overloaded with such information,
We become quite proficient in all navigation,
At home, or abroad, on land, sea or air,
The compass and map will direct everywhere.
Each journey begins with one step at the start,
And, it’s just the same when it comes to my heart.
Christ’s Spirit within me, for He is the source,
Cries ‘Show me my life-path, please di-rect my course.
I need you to be my pilot and guide,
A lamp for my feet as I walk by your side.’
Your mercy and grace, which forgave all my sin,
Is now my route-master to guide me to Heav’n.
From your glorious throne where you’re seated above
You promise to direct my heart in your love.
2 Thessalonians 3:1-5
