The Lonely Path

130

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.
