In The Wilderness of My Soul

Lord, in the wilderness of my soul,
there are valleys deep and low
and sometimes I wander in them
not sure the direction I should go.

In my doubt, I meet with despair,
and my thoughts turn to giving up
for in my self-seeking efforts
I don't see grace raised in Your cup.

In the wilderness of my soul,
there are mountains high and wide
and sometimes I tried to climb them
in the smugness of my pride.

In my own unwavering conceit,
with self-sufficiency in my stride
I can't reach the mountaintop
without the Holy Spirit as my guide.

In the wilderness of my soul,
there is a highway I must prepare
and make it a straightway
so that Your ways, I can declare.

There will be a lot thorns and thistles,
plenty of roadblocks and hurdles too
but my sins I must get up and over
if I want to get close and near to You.

Lord, there is a wilderness in my soul,
a vast land of empty spaces
and long roads for me to travel on
with plenty of rough places.

But, I know that I'm on the right path,
and in the end - it will lead to You
for I'm on the road paved with mercy
and I know You will see me through!

Luke 3:4

"The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his
paths straight."

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
