Our Journey (a poem of inspiration)

The journey of life...
The journey of life...
Only the Lord knows our future...
Only the Lord knows our future...
The storms of life...
The storms of life...
Until the calm...does unfold...
Until the calm...does unfold...
The Lord God guides us each...
The Lord God guides us each...
What the journey of life is to hold...
What the journey of life is to hold...


Life is a spiritual journey, and from its fine beginning until its own end,

Its origin, its direction and final destination, only the good Lord knows,

And only by his benevolent judgement, its greatest length does depend.


As from the time we're born into this world, and until we've run our course,

We are each subjected to the storms, as well as the calms of our lives,

We're made in his image and by strength, we can deal with its great force.


Our Lord God has his own reasons, and each of us, a vital part of his plan,

By our deeds, our actions, what we may say, though we may not understand,

Our goals in life may be a mystery now, unrevealed, and so hidden from view,

His guidance is maintained, always to remain. in every good thing that we do.


Every small kindness, its undertaking, counts much more than we may know,

Though an example is set before only a few, in every heart its soon to grow.

Passed forward to brethren, sisters alike, the seeds of goodness, soon to flourish,

Then every mother's child will rest assured, for of their futures, it shall nourish.

It is a journey led by our God. I think we are all living it out the way he wants us to. Maybe, like you said, not really understanding our deeds, but knowing there is a purpose. It's what keeps me going. And I feel we all have a specific way of sharing our journey. Though some will not understand, it is the ones who take the time to pay attention that will. I get this for sure! :)

Our paths may be slightly different, but I believe all our journeys are the same.
