My Light on the Horizon

Too tired to reach 

Too worn to seek 

Dragging my stumbling feet 

Waiting for my reprieve 

Anchored and out of reach 

Longing to rise and speak 

I try but my voice is weak

Afloat but I’m moored to the beach 

When will joy be the song of my heart? 

Lord, I’m worn 

I don’t know where to start

It’s a push and my mind is a maze 

A mist rises

And I’m caught in the haze.

But Your word is a light to my path 

Help me soar when I take your right hand 

Let me live like a bird who is free 

Unfettered by life’s slow bleed 

Let me rise on a wind that holds weight 

Open wide the door to my passionless cage 

Eyes wide, alive and wide awake 

Lord, I need Your great power to guide the way.

Shine your light on my moody horizon 

Let me laugh at the days still to come 

Breath your abundant life into these dry bones

Top me up with Your undying love.

Your Word is a Path Unto My Feet 

Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions;

the revelation of your Word makes my pathway clear.

To live my life by your righteous rules

has been my holy and lifelong commitment.

I’m bruised and broken, overwhelmed by it all;

breathe life into me again by your living word.

Lord, receive my grateful thanks

and teach me more of how to please you.

Even though my life hangs in the balance,

I’ll keep following what you’ve taught me, no matter what.

The ungodly have done their best to throw me off track,

but I’ll not deviate from what you’ve told me to do.

Everything you speak to me is like joyous treasure,

filling my life with gladness.

I have determined in my heart to obey whatever you say,

fully and forever!

    1. Definitely not a coincidence! I still remember our chat about coincidences and “God sightings.” He Definitely makes Himself known in our lives. So thankful for that. ❤ I hope you’re all well, Ali.

  2. Tina, thanks for sharing God’s uplifting light. His grace and peace brings harmony to His infinite horizon of life. I need to read and study more verses from Psalm 119. God’s peace!
