Do you know where your path leads?

I made a commitment that I would not be alone.

I made a promise to walk to the edge of the rocks.
I made a promise to walk with her all the way.
With each new step, I continue on down the path.
With each new breath, I discover a brand new site.
With each new breath, I accept her critiques as mine.

I’ve made a choice and I will live with it.

At some dark point, the clouds obscure my view.
At some dark point her words turn into darts.
With each new breath I vow not to take revenge.
Please tell me true, what view is worth this cost?
Please tell me true, am I an old doormat?

I question my word, but now I have no choice.

At some dark point, I cannot see a thing.
At some dark point she commits to break me down.
With each new breath, I vow to defend myself.
The rocks are wet and I am beginning to slide.
I defend myself with words that tear her down.

Please tell me true, how can I defend myself?
It’s still and dark and I am struggling to stand.
It’s still and dark and she decides to leave.
I’ve realized that words of revenge never help.
When clouds do lift, I re-discover the view.
When clouds do lift I find that I’m all alone.

Please tell me true, how can I stop the pain?

The time has come. I’ve reached the edge of the rocks.
The time has come. There’s no where else to go.
I question my walk. Was this worth so much pain?
Is now the time to walk back down the path?
Is now the time quit and start anew?

Please tell me true, where can I go from here?

Then suddenly, my vision is totally clear.
I realize that I am not alone.
My strength is gone, but that’s where His does start.
The view is great. It takes my breath away.
This life is sweet and oh so beautiful.

And then I discover I did not see it all.

It does not matter what path we’re on right now.
It does not matter how far we’ve traveled along.
God will meet us no matter where we’re at.
And what is more, this isn’t the end of our path.
With God’s new path, He takes us to the stars.

And then I discover I did not see it all.

God’s strength does dry our path for us.
God’s hope does give us light to move.
God’s grace does care for every wound.
God’s love does tell we’re never alone.
God’s vision does take us to the stars.

John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”
