How will I know Your way?
How will I know that the way I have chosen
to bring me back to You is the way that will?
Surely You have not left me without guidance,
for You knew from the beginning
that my enemies had already begun building
a myriad of roadways and streets, avenues and boulevards,
side roads and trails, planted and bordered
and beautiful to behold.
Each route fabricated with a promise that it will bring me to a god
whom they have named for me.
How will I know Your way
from all who entice me to confound me
and claim me for their own.
Before they knew of me You had kissed me.
Before they had seen me You had pledged to me
and tutored me to freedom.
So when I look upon all that beckon to me with smiles
and listen to all that call out to me with promises
I may remember Your Word
out of Whom I came and Who even now sustains me.
Not one count of time have I been without You.
The law You provided was my cautioning,
and the prophets You raised were my road signs
leading me to that promised place where True Love
provides for me
and protects and comforts me.
Who suffered my sufferings,
died my death,
overcame my death and returned my life,
and took my hand and brought me back to You.
Thank You, Jesus.
