I look for a sign faithfully,
and wonder about my destiny.
Refusing to let fate choose for me,
I make each choice individually.
Questioning my purpose, I ask Thee,
is it your will or mine? Respectfully,
can we compromise then? Openly?
I pray for answers with humility.
Talents bestowed within me,
abilities fashioned for me,
though gifts were laid upon me,
my task seems hidden from me.
Should I walk a straight line for safety?
Veer off the main trail dangerously?
Flip a coin? Draw straws carelessly?
Stop to smell roses occasionally?
Rush into the fire foolishly?
Play “follow the leader” blindly?
Wait for the perfect time patiently?
Or trust my instincts? (always risky)
Time will cooperate…hopefully.
Hardships appear very likely.
I’ll test the true strength of my integrity,
and disregard false friends intelligently.
I’ll let passion drive constantly,
and reason brake, if need be.
Sum unknown capability —
Imagine the possibility!
I’ll pick myself up if I trip.
I shall persevere when I slip.
Determined with stiff upper lip,
no anchors on board my ship.
Where the sun never sets,
where you call off all bets,
where my true love awaits,
angels open the gates.
There — peace and understanding I’ll find.
There — joy and contentment are mine.
There is such a place. Lord, you’re too kind.
Thank you for treasures that hide in my mind!
