Life is a Journey

We travel a well-planned journey as we
walk along each day;
The paths are oh, so numerous -
as we try to find our way.

Sometimes we get half-way along
and decide that path is not right;
So we walk along a different road,
searching for Peace and Light.

The Master’s plan is to show us His world;
let us stumble, then try another way.
He is always there - watching us,
but gives freedom of choice every day.

Life’s map shows roads both high and low -
and we can choose our lane;
But all roads along life’s journey have
both sunshine and some rain.

There is no easy, painless trip
to Truth and Peace and Love,
Until we walk the steps that lead
to God’s Wisdom and Light, above.

If we find ourselves on a path that feels wrong,
He’ll help us to turn around;
Ask His help - hold out your hand -
God’s angels do abound.

To walk into His garden of Life
is to live each day for others;
Doing His Word, being a friend -
for are we not sisters and brothers?

To find that road may take us time,
but God waits patiently;
His Faith in us never wanes -
a Father’s Love - unconditionally.

IT IS NO SECRET

Words and Music: Stuart Hamblin

The chimes of time ring out the news,
Another day is through.
Someone slipped and fell,
Was that someone you?
You may have longed for added strength,
Your courage to renew,
Do not be disheartened,
For I have news for you!!

It is no secret what God can do.
What He's done for others,
He'll do for you.
With arms wide open,
He'll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do.

There is no night for in His light
You'll never walk alone.
Always feel at home
Wherever you may roam.
There is no power can conquer you
While God is on your side
Take Him at His promise,
Don't run away and hide.

It is no secret what God can do.
What He's done for others,
He'll do for you.
With arms wide open,
He'll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do.
