Your ways

Thus says the LORD: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

Jeremiah 6:16 (ESV)

Your ways
Are perfect
Are full of light
Rest for my soul
Your ways bring life
You are perfect

I followed my ways
Full of dangerous traps
I fell
Exhausted
Beaten down
Despised

Then Your hand lifted me
Lead me to a path
Full of light
“Take my yoke upon you
for it is light.”


I thought my way was better
Faster
But
Your ways have saved my life
A still small voice
” Go this way.”

Repent

Trust
Forgive
Love
Believe

Praise
Give thanks
Pray
Study the word

Your ways not my ways
Now safe in Your arms
Adopted
Cherished
Reconciled
A price paid for my freedom
So incredibly high
Thank you
Your ways not mine…

Selah

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Matthew 11:29 (ESV)
