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.

  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 ❤
