Walking Life's Trails

From Paul D. Berube's fifth book in the "Lessons in Life" series.

          Along the trails that we travel,
          Life sometimes can get very hard;
          Yet, they lead to eternal life,
          The gift offered to us by God.

          At times the trails will get rocky,
          As we continue on this quest;
          These are the times we need be strong,
          When our faith is put to the test.

          Put to the test, our faith will be,
          As we travel along our trail;
          If we put true faith in the Lord,
          He will not let one of us fail.

          With God we will find happiness,
          Even when our friends let us down;
          In the Lord we will find true peace,
          Never having to wear a frown.

          Knowing through faith, God always hears,
          When we keep Him deep in our heart;
          In His time, He answers all prayers,
          Just as He has right from the start.

          Not all trails will be straight and smooth,
          Still, they're lit by Heavenly light;
          From the Lord walking by our side,
          He keeps us safe both day and night.

          But, the choice is still up to us,
          Of whether we'll choose to obey;
          It's reflected in all we do,
          And in all of the things we say.

          A friendly smile, a thoughtful word,
          A soft, caressing, tender touch;
          Encouragement in times of need,
          Walking our trails, these mean so much.
