The Path Before Us

The Path Before Us
by Ashley Marshall

This path laid out
for each of us
is one that is a gift.
Planned with love
and delicately crafted
by the Creator
who formed all from the beginning.
He knows your past;
He walks with you in your present,
and in His perfection,
lays hands on your future.
We take gentle steps forward
hesitant and questioning,
never knowing if it’s right or
just simply wanting the control.
Letting go is hard.
Unclenching tightly wound fists,
holding onto our ideal,
our perfect plans.
But, our perfect
is not His perfect.
He knows
what we need.
He sees our hearts
and he builds a future
that is pure,
and full of unexplainable joy.
We can choose
to give our trust
to a Savior
who loves us deeply
and is abounding in
everlasting grace.
