Trusting God

I used to make lifelong decisions
based on my confused feelings; I’d end up
digging holes I didn’t know how to get out
of on my own, then those holes would turn
into tunnels, and soon I’d get so lost
I had no sense of direction.

The Bible says in Proverbs 3:5-6 “trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct thy paths “

It took many years of falling
into the endless pits I dug for myself
to finally admit to myself I was lost
and Jesus Christ would be the only way
I would ever gain any sense of direction
back, without Him directing my life,
I might as well be dead,
and that’s speaking from experience.

Take Heed

Here’s a mindboggling question. Ready, set, go!
Who among you is sure of their salvation?
That day is guaranteed to come one day, often
sooner than expected, you must stand
before Almighty God, speechless and humbled
you won’t know what to say
you’re appointed once to die.
