Life Is a Journey

Let it take us by the hand
Lead us like a lover, keen
Into Today’s foreign land
Where no one has ever been
Or seen what waits to unfold
Will it be gray, green or gold?

Let it fortify our feet
Life is a journey, oh yes,
Bitter mingles with the sweet
Heartache hallows happiness
Trust in He who frees dawn’s gate
He will make our pathways straight

Let it heal our heart’s deep hurt
Fill the hunger in its core
Not with prizes drawn from dirt
But through He Who we live for
Hallelujah, hearts applaud
Life is a journey to God

Hand-foot-heart, this skin-bone cage
Harbors want, fear, hope and need
Unknown spreads its morning stage
Take God’s Hand and let Him lead
For He knows and sees the way
Honor Him with trust today

Today my friend Diane has her third chemo treatment before tests tomorrow to see what is happening. Will you pray for God's peace to calm her and Steve, her husband?
Will you pray for trust when God's ways are not our ways?

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.


  1. Tears. . .so lovely and such a fitting scripture - because our understanding is so limited. Thanks, Janet.
