The sad truth is we are always traveling the wrong way before we find Jesus, (The Way). We often are ignorant of the terrible destination of our soul as we live our self-pleasing, self-satisfying, sinful life. I will be forever grateful for the hard truth that moved me from the road of destruction and placed on the path of the Lord.
The Destination of Two Paths
There is a wide path marked with excess along the way;
With easy access no hard rules to obey.
If there is a regulation, they swerve to the right,
Any infringement of self-satisfaction is grounds for a fight.
The road is not lonely for many on its lane move,
It becomes uncomfortable when asked to go another route.
This is not the way right, choose instead the way of Christ,
Follow the example He lived, follow after His life.
Accept His work in your behalf – renounce your sin,
And travel the straight and narrow road after Him.
There are rules, but He gives you the ability to stand,
Strong and accountable even through hostile land.
He will give you joy unspeakable as He walks by your side.
Filling with glory as you are formed as His bride.
Two paths: one filled with God’s grace,
And the other leads to terrible waste.
There are two paths: one wayward all the way through,
And the other devoted to in God’s Spirit move.
Order my steps in thy word:
and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
And he that taketh not his cross,
and followeth after me, is not worthy of me
