Forks in the Road 3/31/08
There are forks ahead in the road.
I do not know which way to turn,
So I turn to my Lord, my Guide,
For the lesson there to be learned.
My mind has grown overcrowded
With so many choices to make,
And I want to choose the right one,
Only for the Lord's Holy sake.
I must stop at the crossroads and wait,
Until He has made the way clear,
For I don't want to make the mistake
Of abandoning Jesus, so dear.
The waiting seems more than I can bear,
For I want to move steadily on,
But without the say-so from God,
I wait on the path all day long.
My Lord, all I want is Your nod,
For Your will, not mine, to be done,
This pilgrim only to be led,
And then I will joyfully come.
For without You I dare not make
One step out of Your plan Divine,
Because all that You are I want,
Your very best, for You to make mine.
Until then I will sing Your praises,
Your name I will lift to the skies,
For You are my Lord and my Master,
The beauty and tears in my eyes.
