The Road to Nowhere

I asked the heavens for a path to follow
To give my life purpose.
And I waited, expecting the Divine
To lead me far to the West.
He didnít.
And I went nowhere.

I asked the heavens to lead me from the darkness
That had swallowed my spirit.
And I waited, expecting the Divine
To take me down a bright and sunny road.
He didn't.
He led me nowhere.

But in this dark cross road of my life
There was a man with broken wings.
The Divine asked me to stay
So that I could teach the man to fly.
So I waited, expecting the Divine
To perform a miracle and heal the man.
He didn't.
And I went nowhere.

I asked the heavens to help me stand
Midst the darkness of the cross road,
The agony of my struggling spirit,
And the pain of the wounded man.
And the Divine waited, expecting me
To heal the man with the broken wings.
And I did.
And together we flew.

And having gone nowhere,
I found purpose.

This was a blessing. What I grabbed from this was that until you fulfill your God ordained purpose all dreams and visions of shooting for the stars will have to wait. We all have so many assignments and people that the Lord has assigned to us and when we do not see great evidence of change, it is tempting to want to abandon the assignment. But when we hang in there - not only do we fly but those we have been inspired to touch fly. Thank you so much for this!
