God said, “This is My path for you.
It will take you far and wide.
Will you walk the road I give
and trust Me with your life?”
“But Lord,” I said, “Where could it lead?
The path ends at the edge of the sea.”
“My child,” He said “You’ve not reached the end;
just trust yourself to Me.”
I walked the long and difficult road,
and watched the horizon to see,
Would bridge or boat be waiting
at the end of the road for me?
I came to the shore and stood on the beach,
no boat or bridge in sight.
“Lord I followed the path you gave,
trusting with all my might
That you would make a way for me,
yet here I stand tonight;
With neither boat nor bridge
to cross the ocean wide.”
Tears fell across my face,
my heart broken to see
That I had trusted in my God
and He had forgotten me.
Then I saw my Savior,
His hand stretched out to me;
“Do not doubt our Father’s heart,”
He spoke so patiently,
“Come beloved and I will teach you
how to walk upon the sea.”
