A Brand New Path

I remember reading that fairy tale when I was a child so long ago, about the children who wandered off in the woods, not quite sure of where they would go.

But the little boy was smart and had in his hands crumbs from a piece of bread, and these he dropped along the path as they walked further and further ahead.

Thinking of this story reminded me of myself; for before I met you I had wandered so far afield in my life but I had not thought to bring along any crumbs with which to find my way back, I felt like I had no help.

The further I went, the more lost I became, everything familiar faded from sight, until I saw just ahead of me there, the warm glow of reflected light.

I ran to find it, knowing in my heart that there was the help that would fill my needs, and when I reached it, there was Jesus waiting to calm my fears and even more, to set me free indeed.

I took His hand and it just seemed a few steps when out of the woods I came, and there before me lay a brand new path, and I knew nothing would ever be the same.

As soon as I stepped upon this new path, I suddenly saw all the flowers at my feet, and the beauty all around me was lovely to see, and I was eager to run down the path my future to meet.

And around the next curve I saw a wonderful thing, and it was a gift from God, I just knew, for there in the path stood the man I would love, for that was when I met you!

First I had to meet Jesus to learn how to become the person He had in mind, then He poured out His gifts and His blessings along the path for me to find.

He knew what I needed, He knew my most secret dream and His plans included them too, and I can't ever find words enough to thank Him for the gift that He gave me in you.

Now there are not more dark woods, no more getting lost along the way, for now I hold your hand in love, and together we walk the path God has given us, just one more gift from our Father above.

I thank God every day for all of these things, for all of the dreams that He's made come true, but most of all, I thank Him over and over again, for making me complete in you!
