A sense of the future firmly in his hands
And in her hands,
Many choices of what to do, where to go, who to become
An adventure, or so it is thought
Exciting actions taken or not
Even silent prayers spoken within
Talents discovered, used and expressed with new found discipline
Soars into success, or often just stays flat on the ground
In disappointment and frustration!
Often a question grinds away- to give up or press on,
To go in another direction, a different way?
Endless thoughts stir the mind, and challenges bring many to sudden compromise,
And then others to final despair and smothering depression;
The mind grows numb, the will more so
Fresh early desires become only raw needs!
Then, our God and Maker quietly reaches out His Hand of compassion
And touches another with mercy and kindness,
Grace to believe with faith found in our Creator Messiah Yeshua
A Heavenly Gift the heart can cling to
Sudden hope the soul cleaves to
As personal meaning is birthed through spiritual reality
The reason for human existence begins to glow in eyes made more beautiful
A humble Gate opens as a true Door of Peace is entered
The Lord’s Narrow Road of crucified Yeshua, Shepherd King stands before us
The goal now to walk as He walked on the Highway of Holiness and Light
The Kingdom of Living Words and abundance of Purpose for one, for all the same
The God of Love who gave us Life reveals Eternal Life through Him alone
Our future goals of treasures to be discovered, more than fulfilled
With lasting knowledge, understanding in wisdom now seen in Light of Glory!
