Glorious Light

I walked through thickets along a dusty path
The way was not clear it was not meant to pass
But I continued down the broken road
The way more difficult as each cobblestone

Overturned yet another consequence
And the choices I made were my recompense
When I thought I knew best about what was good for “me”
The path that I took would soon let me see

That when I let go of The Father’s hand
That’s when I fell, I could no longer stand
I stumbled and fumbled my way down the path
That ended facing… my own Goliath

But The Lord never left me, He heard my cry
He gave me wings and taught me to fly
So that I could see clearly above adversity
That a path devoid of Jesus was not meant for me

The selfish desires that took me off course
Were not of God, but my own driving force
Letting Satan steer me down the broken road
Impaired my good judgement and it too did erode

Some of my choices were not the best
And each fork in the road presented another test
I took every wrong turn that came upon me
When you’re on Satan’s path there are no right turns…you see

So my advice to you as you go on your way
Do not deviate from the The Lord’s path or from what He has to say
Read His Word daily and paint it on your heart
So you’ll live through eternity, never apart

From The One who loved us
And gave up His life
So our future would be blessed
With His glorious light
