You will make a way through this uncertain road
You’ll clear a path and illuminate my stepping stones.
Where will you take me? You will not say.
Only that you love me and you know the way.
Along the path my Lord leads me, whispering as we go.
Invisible safety embraces me disguised as a “not now” or a “no”.
Holding me to say “wait”, releasing me when it’s time to go.
Where he is leading me, I don’t yet need to know.
You are the warmth I feel
when driving at night
The hope I find
when nothing is right
The melody in my song
When I don’t have a tune
The vision in my head
When I don’t know what to do
Discomfort causes me to stop and listen
What is it you’re trying to say?
My normal devices are saying nothing
So I’ve got to look your way
My name is discernment
Trust what I reveal and know
I show you the hidden things
You’d otherwise never be told
I show you opportunities for blessing
And how to count sorrow as joy
I whisper God’s wisdom
Amid this world’s noise
I sense when something new is brewing
When it is time to block an attack
I sense calmness and times to be still
When to move on and when to hold back
I’m a gift, don’t ignore me
Shut me out or throw me away
Embrace me and listen
Trust what I say
You steered me into the storm
On my trusty boat I went
But the winds picked up
Soon flailing overboard
All my senses spent
This was the way to go?
Why on such a rough sea?
Isn’t there a smoother path
Somewhere designed for me?
But the wind against my sails
Taught me a lesson or two
Gave me new strength and courage
And pointed me straight to you
