When you have a decision to make…among equally appealing ways,
you’ll be heading in the right direction if you begin on the road of praise.
Then, if an unforeseen roadblock on your journey suddenly comes into view,
just keep up the praise to God, and He can easily wave you through.
There could, however, be a perplexing detour that’s totally unexpected;
but trust the Lord if that arises, the Spirit’s direction being greatly respected.
Trusting in Him with all your heart, and not leaning on what your mind decides,
will keep you on God’s high “way” for you, following as He safely guides.
And if you’ve made a wrong turn, not led by faith, but by your own sight,
know that your loving God of heaven will still lead you to His route that’s right.
P. A. Oltrogge
