Last night I was a reflector at our evening service at church. I spoke about my life journey and how God has been there. I mentioned that journeys are unique to each individual and that there are many twists and turns. I shared the poem below at the end of the 3 minute reflection.
I NEVER TRAVELED THIS ROAD BEFORE
I never traveled this road before
Lined with thick brush and boulders
It looks strange and forboding
There's nothing familiar here to guide me.
Each step forward is a step closer
To an unknown destination.
What awaits me, I know not
But I trek on.
I'm nudged ahead
By an unseen hand.
I turn around and
The footprints of my life are gone.
