Heading Into the Future

Walking along life’s path
Life is good
And the day is pleasant,
Up and down gentle rolling hills,
      Heading into the future.

But then a mountain looms!
Call out to move the mountain,
But it doesn’t move,
So climb the mountain
      And keep on going.

But at the top there’s a wild animal!
Call out to banish the beast,
But it doesn’t disappear,
So claim your strength
      And keep on going.

God does not give us
An easy path every day;
We get stronger
As we continue ahead longer
      Past what we thought we could do.

Walking along life’s path
Call out to your Maker,
Receive His love,
As you trust and obey Him,
      Heading into the future
