“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.” (Psalm 119.105)
Seeking The Path
Each person has a prepared place,
Within the framework of God’s will;
To find one’s mission is a grace —
A purpose to live and fulfill.
The Spirit stokes a strong desire,
To find the way and seek His will;
The heart’s enkindled in this fire,
With strong resolve to climb this hill.
Mission unfolds from mystery:
Wisdom leads from confusion’s night;
The Word shines through her history,
To lead her way and clear her sight.
With what great joy the path is found!
The puzzle pieces fall in place;
The mountain seems as but a mound —
Her heart’s washed in a flood of grace.
Earnestly, she sought her mission;
“Fulfill His will” found fruition.
May His Wisdom guide us to the path prepared for us and may the light of His Word shine on us and lead the way.
