…this chosen road…

so, needless to say, it has been a long time since i last wrote…
silence seems a better fit for some seasons,
but by the design of a wise God, seasons change…
winter doesn’t last forever…

there’s no way to fully capture all that i’ve learned in the past year or so… sadly, sometimes lessons are learned the hard way and i bear the scars of foolish choices, disappointment, failure and frustration – and yet, i also wear the crown of wisdom gained, trust renewed and determination to walk the road that God has mapped out for me.

let it suffice, for now, for me to simply share the lyrics of a song that i wrote some time back… the anthem of my journey now…

“this chosen road”

i hear Your voice calling me to follow where You lead
but sometimes surrender is harder than it seems
if i could know where this would end, maybe then i’d take Your hand
can i learn to walk by faith with You?

can i follow and surrender to this path You lead me on?
can i trust You even though this road seems hard and long?
can i let go? can i let You be God?
can i walk this narrow road?

i hear the call of yesterday and the shame of all that’s been
but the call of my tomorrow is echoing within
can i leave the past behind, and trust You one more time
and be embraced by arms of grace that reach for me?

can i follow and surrender to this path You lead me on?
can i trust You even though this road is hard and long?
can i let go? can i let You be God?
can i walk this narrow road?

i hear the song of heaven singing over me
yet i’ll never fully understand this Love that rescues me
it doesn’t matter where it ends, i will surrender to Your plan
i’ve got to learn to walk by faith with You

so i’ll follow and surrender to this path You lead me on
i’ll trust You even though this road seems hard and long
i will let go, i will let You be God
i will walk this narrow road…

…i will walk this chosen road…
