~ Following My Father's Plan ~

I walked for so long in the darkness
I stumbled in sorrow and pain.
I searched for a source of relief,
that I might be whole once again.

I walked through the valley of shadows,
finding only the shards of lost souls.
I fell in my quest to climb mountains,
finding grief that no one could console.

Then a voice spoke to my broken heart,
ďMy child, you are on the wrong road,
be still, let your Father guide you.
Have faith, He can carry your load.Ē

From the darkness of my despair,
I was shown the way to the light;
and my soul rejoiced in gladness,
Iíd survived that long endless night.

Iím now walking with steps of a child,
as the Savior holds tight to my hand,
I will never again walk alone,
for Iím following my Fatherís plan.

Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me
 shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the
light of life.
John 8: 12
