When Decisions Must Be Made

A prayer when the fear of uncertainty replaces trust in a faithful God.

Father, my heart cries to you from fear and doubt:
My path is unclear, and you are not to be found.
The road soon divides, and the darkness creeps in,
So my sight is neared to the next step in my path.
I will take the right or the left, so long as you lead,
But your voice is not near to my ear,
Nor can I feel your hand on my shoulder as I walk.
How long must I wait?  Should I wait, or should I go,
Taking the road that requires the most faith or the one that seems most sensible?
O my soul, why must I live in fear and doubt?
Thy Word, my God, is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
I will walk by the light of thy lamp, although it shows only my next step,
Because you are a faithful God, and You have never failed me.
May the light of your grace shine brightly as I walk,
So that I may not even know the path I am on,
But be glad that You are near.

    I needed to read this today. It's weird that I resonated so much with it, as I feel like I am hearing God's voice so clearly- He does not seem distant, it is my heart that is holding back and not wanting to fully trust in what He is saying. But God is gracious and good. Even through my heart is deceitful, wicked and cannot be trusted- but God can and has promised that so long as my delight is in the Lord the desires of my heart will be from Him! And oh what a promise that is!

    Father grant me peace to walk each step by the light of thy lamp, remove the fear and doubt that easily creeps in. You are faithful God and have never failed me!
