Two Paths

When two paths stretch before us,
We have a choice to make.
Is there an obvious answer
That will tell us the one to take?

While both roads look appealing,
Each has its jagged spots.
How do we tell which one is best,
Which is good and which is not?

We try to have faith and do God's will
So we begin to pray.
We hope God will be listening
And lead us in the right way.

We begin to hear His answer.
We strain to understand.
It almost sounds too simple -
We expected an intricate plan.

"It doesn't matter which way you go
As long as you take me along.
For if you commit your life to me
I will help to make you strong.

I will be with you wherever you go.
I will help you to do my will.
It is not important which path you choose.
Look to me, let go and be still."

Is that really all there is?
No agonizing decisions?
We don't have to ponder the pros and cons
Or wait for special visions?

The answer comes so quietly
As we give God our attention.
"If you dedicate your lives to me,
You'll go in the right direction."
