Unknown roads are hard to follow,
no guarantee they will lead to tomorrow.
New experiences and adventures, waiting to be discovered,
are often blocked and thoroughly covered.
By paths so murky, can’t see where I’m going.
The roads are unpredictable, anxiety free-flowing.
But my steps are ordered, so I’ve been told,
according to the scripture of testament old.
But if I pay close attention, I don’t need to see.
My faith in God is what guides me.
As I make my way to life’s next intersection,
God is right there with me, in my mind’s reflection.
There to guide me should I stumble and fall.
He has heard my cry, even before I call.
Faith propels me to get up and try again.
To follow the roads as they twist and bend.
My faith has grown every step of the way.
A guiding light for each new day.
Penetrating the darkness that eclipses my view,
making way for the traveling I have yet to do.
