The Journey


We look out way in front
To try and see the end
We forget where we're walking
And surely where we've been

God says, Let me take you there
This Journey that you're on
Let me accompany you there
Let me love you as we walk

Yet we require to finish
To hurry and fulfill the task
Only to question the Lord
Where are you? we ask

In a small quiet voice
God says, I'm right here
You're so anxious to finish
You forgot that I was near

I give you Journeys
Not only to finish on time
But so I can walk with you
Thru the valley to the mountain climb

You're in such a hurry
To reach the other side
You miss the intimacy
The Journey brings as I guide

When we run on ahead
Leave God to be on our own
It saddens His broken heart
He yearns for that time alone

The beauty of the Journey
Is what it's all really for
The Journey itself
Brings us closer to the Lord

So walk each day
With Him by your side
Don't get in a hurry
And lose the Journey's site

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
