Poetry Sunday ~ The Step

2 Sam. 22: 37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip.

The Step

When we’re born of this world
We took steps as we grew
A journey called life
And days we’d pass through.

Without a step forward
Our lives seemed marred
A struggle to bear;
Each movement too hard.

A step is a cushion
That cradles your feet
A welcoming home
Of each day that we greet.

No steps in place,
No ladder to climb.
A hindered life
No reason, no rhyme.

God gave us steps
To comfort our walk
To Him we turn
We bow to talk.

Thank you Lord
For the steps that you lay.
My pain is now eased
To you I do pray.

Pss. 37: 31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

Thank you Steven, for building that one step that relieved so much pain in my back!!!

I guess F2K has stuck! I can't leave a post with no comment--LOL

I also thank the Lord for the steps He places before me. Sometimes I don't like them, but am thankful for where He is leading me.

He has lead me SO far this year and reconfirming my direction in ministry.

Thank you, Joni, for all your posts--know I read even if I don't comment. I know that you write for you from your heart and what God is showing teaching you--but it seems everything you write, God has meant just for me!

Thanks ~ Tiggs

I understand the no comments, sometimes people feel overwhelmed by the fact that I know what they need to hear. :)

You love to comment and let me know that it touched you, that means a lot!!

Thanks Tigs! (one day I'll remember that extra 'G') lol
