I am a new member, and an Australian Christian Writer. This is my first entry to the weekly challenge.
So often we become so busy with our lives, we become worn out and frazzled and find it hard to cope. We need to take time out to find the path we need, to find renewal and direction in our lives. The poem I would like to share, leads us on the path to Jesus Christ, who restores our souls.
A Time Apart
Jesus tender Shepherd lead me
to a place of quiet rest,
knowing Lord that in Your wisdom
You alone for me know best.
Lead me by the quiet still waters,
gently wash away my cares,
for I know that You have heard me
and You listen to my prayers.
Wash away the sins that bind me,
You alone can make me whole,
as I wait in quiet and stillness
I pray You gently cleanse my soul.
Bring renewal and restoration,
as I spend this time with You.
A time apart to know Your leading,
show me Lord what I must do.
Help me Lord to know Your wisdom,
take my hand and show the way,
with Your love I know You’ll lead me
to a brand new brighter day.
