Your Word

Psalm 119:105

Psalm 119:160
Proverbs 16:9
Proverbs 20:24
Habakkuk 3:17-19

“Your Word is a Lamp
For my feet.”
Keeping me with Your same beat.

“Your Word is a Light
On my path.”
As my future I grasp.

“For my feet
Your Word is a Lamp.”
Your Spirit in me encamp.

“On my path
Your Word is a Light.”
Taking me to new heights.

God’s Purpose









God's Purpose 
Eph. 1:11 and Phil. 2:13

Walking life's journey,
Striving toward His call,
Thinking we know God's purpose,
But may not really know it at all.

Could be countless closed doors
And struggles every day,
Or many opened, very easy,
But God's goal, can we say?

Helping someone
Is good within itself,
But maybe His unknown desire,
Though puzzling, is actually something else.

Speaking about Christ to one,
As another listens near,
The Holy Spirit leads - 
It's the other ready to hear.

So, through our daily lives
Someone might be there
Who is blessed by our love of Jesus,
Whom we are unaware.

We don’t always know the purpose God has when we strive for our goal, but whether we know it or not, He will always achieve it when we are moldable clay in His hands.
