I have recently found myself in a place of medical need. During this time I have seen friends, family undergoing their own medical, family and emotional struggles and I was lead to remember who Christ really is and to write this:

 

The road ahead beckons me
To be steadfast and true to it each day.
It calls to my spirit to see
No matter the rocks thrown in my way,
 
From beginnings to the end
His grace will hold me up
And even when there is a blind bend
His love will be waiting in my faith’s hope.
 
And, my Lord will know:
As my staggering steps show;
As my body’s strains grow;
As my weakness makes me slow;
 
I will keep within my sight
The next step ahead,
And, despite the pits and rocks, fight
To hold His out stretched hands, that once bled.
 
When I think these things too much to bear,
I will see His tears,
Falling because he cares,
And I will stand straight, losing all of my fears.
 
And His grace will grow
While my steps no longer slow;
While my pain will not show;
While my Lord leads me to where only He knows.

Hoping you are well on the way to recovery and have received the meds you need to keep you on the alert and on the road ahead. The road may be long or it may be short, only God knows the ending. Have faith though and trust him to lead you on the road always.
