I pray for His guidance along this beaten path I traverse,
For this rocky life is riddled with many calamities.
I struggle daily to move amongst the prickly weeds of temptation , outsmart ruthless bandits and survive the smeltering heat.
I know of my own,
I stand no chance of completion.
I would surely be left along the way side.
Be a compass to me oh God
So I may step where You will.
Never branching off to a seemingly easier lane,
paved with gold and good intentions.
You will be a companion
ever at my side
encouraging me to go on despite the harsh winds
pelting rain and cold snow of lonliness.
My resolve be strengthened
To never give up
and believe continually in your promise
To never leave me or forsake me.
