whisperings

perched amidst the jasmine vine
in a garden lost in time
pondering the garden stone
my heart cries out to Thee alone
Lord, you hold my destiny
what is the path You’ve planned for me?

You gently whisper to my soul
no need to look before
what’s past is past
redeemed at last
stand firm and gaze ahead

in the sparrows’ call You sing
walk the path of My own choosing
do not look back
at what you’ve lacked
do not worry if you fall
be only faithful to My call
for as you journey in this land
you shall know I hold your hand

You gently whisper to my soul
no need to look before
what’s past is past
redeemed at last
stand firm and gaze ahead

Your words, O Lord, now light my way
come direct my steps I pray
Your Spirit calls come forth today
listen close to what I say
as I walk through the garden gate
I know the Lord hath sealed my fate

i gently whisper to my Lord
i won’t look before
what’s past is past
redeemed at last
i stand firm and gaze ahead

My favorite line is Your spirit calls come forth today. wow Reminds me of Lazurus being called from the grave. talk about your not looking back, oh my goodness.

I too really enjoyed the line "what's past is past ... redeemed at last." Such a simply phrase with so much power and meaning.

This poem had such a gentle feel to it yet was loaded with depth and wisdom. Wonderful writing!

This is so lovely. The repetition just brings the message home. I could easily see myself memorizing this piece so I would always have it in my heart.
