the whole way home

Linking up once again with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five-Minute Friday.

The challenge?  Write for five minutes on the word view.

 

the viewImage

from the rear view mirror

is always the clearest

 

hindsight

and terrain gone by

overcome and conquered

 

but the windshield

the windshield is rather foggy

and i can’t always see my way

 

with limited visibility

i squint to discern what is ahead

 

i ask You to show me more,

but You say,

no.

 

You say

 

trust.

 

i ask you to show me what lies beyond

that hill on this bumpy gravel path

but You say

follow the narrow road

 

i ask You to show me

where we are going

 

and You say

to the Celestial City

just like Christian

in Pilgrim’s Progress

 

just follow the narrow road

 

and You steer my car

and lead me

the whole way

 

home.

  1. Beautiful, just beautiful. So simple, but oh, isn’t trust the hardest thing? It’s a lifelong journey of letting him steer, just like you wrote so eloquently here. Blessings to you on this road, friend.

    • Thanks, Amber. Loved, loved, loved your post this week. I even sent the link to Lisa-Jo Baker via Twitter, and she responded, “Oh holy sacred ground yes. So much beauty.” 🙂
