May 4th Daily Cheer

And He led them forth by the right way.

-Psalms cvii:7.

~*~

He chose this path for thee-

No feeble chance nor hard relentless fate

But love- his love hath placed thy footsteps here

He knew the way was rough and desolate

Knew how thy heart would often sink with fear

Yet tenderly He whispered “Child, I see

This path is best for thee.”

He chose this path for thee-

Though well He knew sharp thorns would tear thy feet

Knew how the brambles would obstruct the way

Knew all the hidden dangers thou wouldst meet

Knew how thy faith would falter day by day

And still the whisper echoed “Yes, I see

This path is the best for thee.”

*  *  *   *  *  *

He chose this path for thee.

What need’st thou more? The sweeter truth is to know!

That along these strange bewildering ways

Over rocky steeps, and where dark rivers flow

His loving arms will bear thee all the days

A few steps more and thou thyself shalt see

This path is best for thee.

-The Believer’s Pathway
