DISCERNMENT

Melinda Williams

The way is hard
sometimes,
and the destination hidden
by things unformed.
Yet, I dare not tarry here.
If I am to stay close
to a living, breathing God,
I must move,
pay attention to the direction
God calls me to travel,
let God lead me
to where the Holy Spirit waits
to accompany me,
champion me,
walk with me in holy trust,
in breaths of prayer,
in patient love.
The way is God’s,
and walking together
reassures me
the journey
and the destination
will be holy ground.

 

5-SECOND PRAYER: God, show me the direction I should travel and lead me in your love. Amen.
