When Iím not sure what path to choose
And which direction to refuse,

When I canít see what lies concealed
And wait for truth to be revealed,

When problems occupy my mind,
And sweet release I cannot find,

When troubles seem to linger near,
And all I do is fret and fear,

When Iím bewildered and bemused,
And all my thoughts become confused,

When straight ahead the way is blurred,
And not a voice of hope is heard,



Those times I will not hesitate
Upon Godís Word to meditate.

Then humbly, I before Him kneel
And feel His presence, close and real.

I offer up my earnest prayers
And cast on Him my deepest cares.

Then, when I cannot see His face,
Iíll trust in His unchanging grace.

I know His promises are true;
Each day Heíll surely see me through.

Though difficulties lie ahead,
By His own hand I will be led.

Wonderful advice set up with sweetly simple cadence.

What a lovely poem! Your meter is perfect, and I, too, found it comforting, like you'd tenderly hold your troubled child and rock it to sleep reciting this poem.
This is a keeper! I hope it finds its way to the top of the heap where it surely belongs.

Short, sweet and so very true. Nicely done.

Lovely poem and on target; it's what one would call "soothing" to the ear, mind and soul. Loved it!
