As I merge onto the thoroughfare of life
may I never forget to yield to Your ways;
stop to heed the warnings You’ve posted
Along the infrastructure of this final journey.
Please help me to drive defensively, while
negotiating my way through the many lanes
of road rage and countless alternate routes;
always using Your Holy Map to guide me Home.
When my faith’s gone flat from random nails of distrust,
and my exhausted spirit has run out of energy
let me pray, the emergency flare of my heart,
and I will beg brightly for You to rescue me.
And when I am lost and have strayed too far off course;
when I have boldly wandered into deadly danger zones,
may I humble myself and ask for directions, knowing that
Heaven’s mercy always allows its drivers to make U- turns.
Yes, indeed He does allow U-turns. When He sees us getting turned in the wrong direction, He soon puts up a STOP sign, and turns us back to the path of life. You are such a blessing and such an inspiration to us all. Love you, Sharon
