You never know what life's basket will bring
When you awaken each day
Whether it's the fruit of bliss
Or the spoil of sorrow
But no matter how heavy or light it is
God is there to help you carry it.
We don't always know why
Some of life's doors are meant to be opened
And some remain closed
But when we reach heaven's gates
God's answers will finally be revealed.
In an instant,
Life escapes through the tunnel of death
Silencing the soul of vitality
And closing the lids of earthly vision
Then reincarnates into an eternal spirit of longevity.
Celestial footsteps on the ocean shore
Following me every which way
In the sands of suffering
Steering the rocky ship of uncertainty
As we ride together
In the turbulent waves of impending adversity
Never letting me drown
In the sea of sorrow
Carrying me back safely to
The land of divine paradise
Always ready to listen
Always there to comfort
Always by my side
Always holding me
In the palm of his mighty hand.
We don't always see where we're going
Until we reach the end of the line
But along the way
We are presented with challenges
That test our physical endurance and spiritual reliance.
