This is an edited write from about a year ago that is a fitting follow up to "A MESSAGE RECEIVED" which I posted yesterday, December 14, 2009. I looked for the original that I had posted in the Den way back when but couldn't find it. In any event, it is similar to the first posting but changed and edited in several ways. I hope you find inspiration here and enjoy this and may God bless.
Upon all these trails we travel,
Life, at times, can be very hard;
Yet, they lead to eternal life,
The gift offered to all by God.
At times, the trails may get rocky,
As we continue on our quest;
These are the times we must be strong,
When our faith is put to the test.
Put to the test, our faith will be,
As we travel along earth’s trails;
If we keep true faith in our Lord,
There is no way for us to fail.
In God we will find happiness,
Even though friends may let us down;
With our Lord we will find true peace,
Never needing to wear a frown.
Know, through faith, that God always hears,
Trust in Him with all of our heart;
In His way and time, He answers all prayers,
Just as He has from the very start.
Some trails won't be straight or level,
Still, they're lit by Heavenly light;
By the Lord there right by our side,
He makes our trails safe day and night.
But the choice is always up to us,
Of whether we will choose to obey;
It is reflected in all we do,
Also in all of the things we say.
A friendly smile, a thoughtful word,
A soft, caressing, tender touch;
Encouragement in times of need,
As we travel our trails, these mean so much.
