It seems that I am always quite a ways from You…But I do see in many situations, You are involved in guiding my steps; Lots of corners, and detours in my pathway . I need more faith, each day.
Road blocks and challenges on every hand. I get the feeling that You are unavailable, or distant.
I can not see Your face…and live! (Like You told Moses, in the story of Exodus 33: 20)
I do want to be close to You. Please lead me, though I can not see around the corner of the path !
You are always there—by day and in the night.
Keep me true in everything I do, to find the right.
So often Lord, I wander without sight;
But Scripture is becoming more my guide…
I pray that I will sense You by my side.
Please help me solve each problem which I face.
You ever have the answer through Your grace.
And now I pray for wisdom, grace, and power,
To know that You are guiding me each hour.
I walk by faith, and not with vision bright;
But may I trust Your message without sight.
Ev’ry angle to those things I face
Is known to You—each person, and each place.
Thank You for the guidance I receive;
And may I daily trust; and then believe!
In the name of Jesus Christ I pray,
