The Nowhere Road.
Inspired and based on: ‘The Message’ version of Psalm 119 vs 1-8 & 25-32
Knowing what I know why would I ever
Walk the nowhere road?
And knowing who I know
Why would I leave His side
Where He walks with me, on the road to somewhere.
But there are days when I choose ways that I don’t understand
And there are times when I get lost and let go of His hand.
And when I look and all I see
Is the broken, hopeless part of me
And bound with fear
And never free
I’m on the road to nowhere,
And only yesterday it seems,
I was singing in the sunlight.
And such a different time ago
My dreams and hopes and all I know were on the road to somewhere!
But the way got rough and I could not see
That what He did was best for me
So I grasped at things not good for me,
And let go of His hand.
Now I’m stumbling about to fall,
Overwhelmed by giants
And lost on the road to nowhere.
I hate myself for turning away
And following signposts
That led me astray,
Listening to voices
That had nothing to say
About staying on the road
Then I heard a voice deep down inside
And He spoke to my soul,
Shone His light on my pride
Said ‘My child I know the ‘you’ you hide
And I love you’.
Knowing who I know and hearing His voice
What could I do but make a choice?
So I put my hand into His again,
Felt the scars and remembered the pain,
And the price that He paid
For me to be free…… to choose the road to somewhere.
