Each Step Has Its Story

It's God who stares upon our steps
And contents of our hearts,
He knows our heights, He knows our depths,
He knows our stops and starts...
So why not trust the Lord above,
Like many poets do?
They know He sees us from above,
Yes, even me... and you...
Perhaps that's why disciples pray
For everyone they meet,
That God will guide steps on their way,
That bless their souls and feet...

Don't think that I can always walk,
That steps come easily,
These mortal steps of which I talk
Are borne of faith, you see...
We know of Footprints In The Sand,
That caused someone to sigh,
Yet Christ was there to hold the hand
Each time when questioned why...
He won't desert the broken heart,
Reject the sinful soul,
That's why saints sing, How Great Thou Art,
For God is in control...

Let God be God and Man be Man,
Let wisdom grow and thrive,
How else can we fulfil His plan
In Heaven to arrive?
God's got more steps to Paradise
Beyond this Earth's domain,
By faith, let's climb and not think twice,
For there's so much to gain...
It's step-by-step, a gentle stride,
From Earth to Heaven's Throne,
With Jesus Christ, walk side-by-side,
For Heaven is our Home...

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
