Divergent Paths

I stood at a crossroad wondering which road to choose,
Left or right, what will I gain or what will I loose,
I’m not sure if it’s better to choose, quickly…. or to contemplate,
for if I go the wrong direction, it will already be too late,
I stood motionless with confusion,
nothing to lead me with fresh infusion
left or right,
no markers in sight,
the path to the right looks rocky, yet it holds a special allure,
that is the way I really want to go, but I’m still a little unsure.

It seems hard but I must make a choice,
I know I must always listen to my inner voice,
slowly I stepped to the right on a stone filled path, knees shaking and feeling weak,
each stone wobbles as I try to balance my feet,
echos behind me speak of failure, but I have no desire to listen,
thoughts flashed across my mind of many who went missing,
as I travellled along the path, tears welled up in my eyes,
many questions lingered in my mind, I begin to ask God why…

Instantly I felt a warm embrace,
as my tears caressed my face,
many will never understand the feeling I got, it’s hard to explain but I’ll do my best,
I’d imagine it’s like fresh air deeply inhaled into my chest,
my lungs filled up with all the freshness,
and I exhaled all that causes me stress,
I continued on the rocky path, I know it is the best,
at last am free from misery, at last my feet found rest.

If you’re faced with obstacles along the right path, take heart knowing that you’re not on your own, God is with you every step of the way.

As always thank you for reading. Feel free to like, share, leave your thought or reblog.

Until we meet again in this space…much love and blessings.♥♥♥

I am Fay Ann, and it is pretty simple. I am a firm believer in God and a Christian blogger who loves writing. My mission is to encourage others to continue living for Christ and remain faithful, focus and fervent. I know God loves me and he also loves you because you are His child; and his nature is to love His children. I am here to declare God’s praises to those who don’t know him so they can find his marvellous light and leave their world of darkness. It is also my desire to become a channel of inspiration and hope to other people especially women who are struggling. I also have the passion to inspire young people to live their life with a purpose for the Lord. I have learned that what milk is to a baby’s body, the word of God is to the soul. It is the food that fuels healthy spiritual growth and just like your mother used to tell you, if you want to grow you need to eat. I feel strongly that these daily reminders of God’s word and presence in our lives is key to maintaining a Godly perspective as we begin each day; and pray that you will be inspired and blessed by the daily devotionals and are passing them along to family and friends. My favourite activities include reading, writing and spending time with great friends and family. I love to share the best thing in my life, the gospel. Let’s be stronger together. You can subscribe below to receive free grace-filled devotionals for your encouragement. God Bless you richly. Shalom.

    1. It has to be from the Holy Spirit.
      The Lord knows I tend to worry alot so he often shift my focus by prompting me through the Holy Spirit to share my experiences in a poetic way or otherwise.
