JOURNEY OF FAITH

 

"...FOR I HAVE CALLED THEE BY NAME; THOU ART MINE." ISAIAH 43:1

 

Each of us, with a measure of faith is born.

Free will God gives us, to spend it as we choose.

Born into a world by two sides is torn.

Between two Masters we must decide: Father of Lies, Father of Life.

On who's side shall we eternally abide?

 

It starts as soon as we start to grow,

Father of Lies whispers to us such tempting lies so sweet.

Come, Forsaken child of mine,

into these welcoming flames

of flesh's desire leap.

 

Cast into valleys seeped with shadows; tangled in webs of dispair,

tossed and lost in the seas of darkness.

Sinking and dying, our souls gasping for air,

into hell's cold abyss we stumbled and fell.

 

Oh God, Help! The whispered words tumble from your plundered mind.

Pure light on the Horizon your eye does find,

Holy Lamb of God, now stands above.

Radiant with mercy, compassion and love,

with pierced, nail scared hand, gently He lifts you;

sets your feet on a rock firmly to stand.

 

My sweet child come, follow me.

For Home to our Father of Life I shall guide you,

As together, hand in hand, we complete Life's journey of Faith.
