Rocky Road To Faith

Rocky Road To Faith
by Michael Romani

There are so many times we scoff in pride
Looking at God's will far from the outside
Believing our own path and our will be done
Instead of walking the path of our Father's son

As we walk our path we see many choices to make
At times we are unclear on which road to take
It is truly our decision whether we will obey
When we don't it surely brings trouble our way

Stumbling among the rocks we find on our road
We stubbornly want do as we will and not be told
Allowing no one to tell us how we should live
We do as we want hoping on God's grace to forgive

So many times we hear the opinions of choice
A clattering of ignorance given in full voices
Too many of us walk our walk in full ignorance
Of God's principles and laws in our self importance

We force our lives often falling face forward
Instead of taking the time required by the Lord
Along the way we have lost all semblance of trust
Though, as it so often turns our, we really must

As we leave the troubles caused by our obstinance
We must faithfully allow God to take the consequence
Instead of trusting in the scripture we should heed
We turn to ourselves in satisfying our every need

The trick of this journey is one so simply sublime
It must be taken step by step one at a holy time
Trusting that God knows what's just around the bend
We walk only as far as God shines and on Him we depend
