The Path: Certainty / Uncertainty #devotion


the path

The path is long

fraught with stumbles and turns

bruises and bumps

but from each step we learn

The way is unclear

the gravel beneath

cuts and convicts

throwing us on our knees

The trail always upward

I wipe my brow

knowing there’s a finish

I know the way for now

 

Do you take steps in life that you wish you could re-do? Do you find yourself in unfamiliar settings wondering how you got off course? Life is a journey of uncertainty but we have a master who holds the compass lovingly beckoning us to the next turn of our quest.

up down

 

 

Psalm 119:105

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Proverbs 3:6

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Matthew 7:13

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Beautiful poem and beautiful photo, Leslie. That looks like such a great place to walk. Would love to have walked with you there. Life is certainly uncertain, but I suppose all we can do is chin up, look up and press onwards. The more we do, the more we learn and move along…and there’s always a tomorrow to try again 🙂 ❤

  2. The lack of this publicity contributes directly to the amount of the population that watches other
    sports instead of soccer. If you think you’ve forgotten some
    of the rules, it would not hurt to take a glance of the rules and instructions.

    Look inside the records for more information before placing your soccer bets.

  3. Loved this thought-provoking poem ❤
    I guess we all have walked paths which we wished we could go back to.. and re-do
    But I believe that we walk on those paths for a reason 🙂
    Perhaps to learn something which contributes to being the person we are today ❤

    Beautifully executed ❤
    xoxo

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
