The Path Narrows

As a concept it is perfect – stay close to the path maker!

Yet I have all sorts of thoughts going through my head

Did I really believe I would get through this day while lying in my bed?

It’s a long way down when you are trying to make it on your own

It’s a pretty lonely place when you try to save yourself

I thought I would get a throne but I was just handed a piece of rope

How long is it does not matter when the way is a steady line

You are not our of your mind if you still have faith when you step out

You are not without faith if you still have doubt when you step out

Because the way has never been mine or yours and, after all, He is the one who knocks on our door.

You’ve been walking the tightrope for a long time and there has been too much going on for you to notice the view

You’ve been cosy in your living room for a long time and there has been so little going on for you to  notice the new

But you’ve just seen someone  walk between two mountains

And you realize there is more

It’s a long way up when you choose Him as your own

It’s a pretty exciting place when you let yourself be saved

As a concept it is perfect – stay close to the path maker!

And this is what I intend to do – what about you?

If you fall what is at the end to stop you?

And maybe just maybe the journey from beginning to finish

Will not be a reaching for a throne but a life risked

through depression, elation, frustration, oppression

the way was never intended to be impossible

but always involves offering

oneself to the fragile and tender

the worthwhile and mender

the fool and the wise

every kind.

He makes and shapes the path for you and I to follow

And this is what I intend to do – what about you?
