I awoke feeling alone again on just one of many mornings.
The cloudy sky unleashed a sheet of rain; a dark and gloomy beginning.
I knew I would embark on a long voyage on a lonely and dimly lit trail.
It’s a path that only I will follow and I wondered if I’d fly, float, or fail.
For there are tasks before me that I’m duty bound to complete.
Only the Loving Lord sees them all and knows if I will succeed.
This is just one day in a lifelong journey on an unseen road forged for me.
I need to bravely follow by faith along this quiet trail which I cannot see.
But I know that Jesus will kindly lead me and gently hold my trembling hand
As I silently walk this lonely path which I do not understand.
