Itís very difficult to see a ministry implode from the inside out after you have taken so much time to create,care and nuture it. It could make a person give up if they lose sight of the Author of Creation. It seems to me one could lament, linger in discouragment or embrace it and look forward to what the Lord has next. After all in Job 23:10 it saysĒ But he knows the way I take; When he has tested me, I shall come forth as goldĒ. I know in my heart there is no way for me to continue in the ministry due to outside circumstances so I must trust my savior to know the way I take. I am very thankful for the time he gave me in that ministry and the fruit that came forth by his hand. But I am eagerly awaiting another opportunity to be used by him and I pray he will find me faithful. I rejoice in my Lordís faithfulness and thank God that his mercies are new everyday.
The Path That I Take
Lord I wait upon your faithfulness to help show me the way
I count upon you mercies that are new everyday
Although Iíve shed some tears and had to say goodbye
To a dream that I had tended which your hand prospered in due time
You were faithful when you showed me fruit that came from loving you so much
It was easy to share with others helping them to feel your special touch.
But now I know itís over and your showing me the door
And I glimpse ahead the path Iíll take as my feet walk across the floor
The path ahead is not so clear a narrow slit among the vines and trees
Overgrow and lush it is and as It rustles in the breeze
Itís song is ever calling me the gospel is itís sweet refrain
My savior now is beckoning for he knows the path I take will never be in vain
As I bravely face the unseen trials that linger in his wake I dream of that purest gold
That only christ can make as I start out on this journey with nothing but his hand to hold
