Blessed Acknowledgement

I acknowledged the Lord,
In all my ways.
Awaiting His permission each step.
His divine mercy and infinite grace,
Kept my every move in check.

I followed his advice,
Though mine seemed better.
Executing His every command.
He brought me through an empty ocean,
Removing sin's every letter.

I obeyed Him in destitution,
Though disobedience seemed wiser.
God had the better option.
Taking the unpopular road,
I realised was a lot shorter.

Blessing after blessing,
A continual receiving,
As long as I consulted God.
He gave me the ultimate prize,
His constant presence and perfect guide!

This is an amazingly good poem and a fine tribute to the lord Christian, please if you can find the time, I have two poems that I feel you may enjoy 'KEEP YOUR AIM IN SIGHT'and'HOW MANY KNOCKS' Love duncan X
I wrote this poem based on these verses in the Bible: Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3: 5-6
