I Choose Life #sundaydevotion #poetry


misty-path

a fork in the road

threw indecision my way

left or right

a price to pay

one path almost spoke

come here and walk

you’ll never regret

the pleasures Ive wrought

the other was narrow

with pebbles and leaves

golden light flickered

warming the trees

I reached out my gaze

took my first step

years that was now

many pilgrims Ive met

heaven’s gate is beyond

to a world free of strife

I owe it all to that path

it gave me new life

Life's gate

The “gate” in the Bible is mentioned like the fork in the road. There is a broad gate to destruction people are distracted by  stuff, pleasure, and gain but the end result is eternal pain.  There are trials, stumbling, disappointment when you walk through narrow gate but at the end is rejoicing where Jesus awaits.

“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. After the master of the house gets up and shuts the door, you will stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’

But he will reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’

Luke 13:24 & 25

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Matthew 17: 13 & 14

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

  1. __ So good to see you Moonie_! I sense the Native Americans, the Housatonics -may- have said this:

    as the river parts
    choose the smaller stream
    less canoes

    __ The old saying, “less is more.” _m

  2. Hello Moondustwriter, been awhile since I’ve been doing anything on my Poems & Books blog. Been busy doing other blogs and such. Thought I’d get back in touch with fellow writers and artist. As always this is a beautiful poem you have posted and the images are perfect. Love your blog and I hope you have a fulfilling and plentiful new year. Best regards Eileen
