Take Me Through

Take me through this path each day
Hold my hand as I speak the words I say
Free my soul to see your face
and help me stand upon my faith.

All around I see the pain
of people searching, only to blame
from calling names, to expressing rage
take me through this path I pray.

The cry for help is O so real
yet help is there for those who believe
for the cloud of discord covers the eyes
as dangerously we walk into the path of lies.

Take me through this path each day
with purpose to stand and strengthen my way
a renewed mind to trust and obey
while holding to the words You say.

Motivation for this Poem
Psalm 40 starts out by saying, “I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure”. The entire chapter speaks of God my helper and deliverer. Take Me Through speaks to that journey.
