How Far I Have Traveled
How far I’ve traveled in my life,
I was lost and blind, but now, I’m found with new insight.
From the dark grasp of doom and gloom; I’ve been set free.
I walk in the light, as the Light, walks in me.
Fear, was a constant companion; that always pulled me down.
But now my Lord has pulled me to higher ground
Worry; burdened my heart, and, circumstances blocked my path.
Now, by faith I see a future bright, and my Lord, my burdens pack.
Hope is always nearby … gone, is the weight of dread.
The Word of God, has spoken into my life, and paves the way ahead.
I’ve traveled, far away, from my past and shame.
My Lord has paid my debt, and has given me, the honor of His name.
I still walk, through dry places; and through storms that blow,
But presently, God is my drink, and, the shelter for my soul.
I used to feel so alone, and afraid of what lay ahead.
But today, I remember, all my God has said.
He says He never will leave me; for He lives within.
He goes before me… as I follow after Him.
He is, for me; what have I to fear, I ask?
I travel toward a heavenly city, and,I will not look back.
I walk from death to life, and from life, to life evermore,
To be with Jesus, my Savior, and my risen Lord!
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
