She had much favor with God -
And then heard Gabriel’s word:
She, Mary - to bear a child:
The Messiah, Jesus – the Lord.

Though so much was against,
Her as well as Joseph,
Both stood strong and believed
Standing firm in God’s promise.

Christ, babe, child, Son;
Absolute sinless Deity -
Who set out for forty days
To fast for humanity.

Son of Man was tempted much;
Tried and truly tested –
He won against all evil…
It was death that He arrested.

Step forward in His Truth
Never look back upon
All the sins that He died for
That horrid day upon the cross.

Step forward in His Love
Never look back upon
The hardships and the struggling
That you attempted all alone.

Step forward in His Joy
No matter how hard it may seem;
For He is with you in all you do -
In all aspects, all extremes.

Step forward in His Hope
Always seeking after Him
For He freely gives salvation
For those who chose to believe.

Do truly contemplate His death
Upon the cross at Calvary;
For Christ Jesus covered all sin
So you and I could be free.

Nicely done...I like how you chronicled each journey with reference to the Word, and ending it with our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

I loved it. Great job.

God Bless~

The meaning behind this piece is crystal clear. It can be scary to take those steps forward but what a comfort to know Jesus is with us.

I did stumble over some lines and had a hard time getting the words out. I don't have a natural ear for the stressed and unstressed syllables so I could be wrong but my gut feeling is the pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables was off just a bit. I also noticed at times you had delightful rhymes and other verses didn't rhyme.

The most important thing is to know you are touching the heart of people all over the world. There are people in dozens of countries who are being uplifted from your beautiful words coupled with the Holy Spirit's nudging. How cool is that? Nice job.
