The Journey – A Christian Poem for the Lenten Season

Give my heart feet
So that it may walk towards you.
Give me the motivation to arise,
And the drive to see your will through.

When I am idle
Put my body back into gear –
To continue to put one foot in front of the other
In the presence of doubt and fear.

You are my shield that protects me
When the trumpets blare and bows are strung.
But you can only protect me
When I march mightily – not when I turn and run.

The journey looks impossible
When I measure the miles.
But one foot in front of the other
And your love endures endless trials.

-Poem Written by Justin Farley

  1. With God, there’s nothing impossible 🙂 The journey might not be a smooth, the road to heaven is seldom easy but if an intimate relationship with God is a priority, then its going to be delightfully worth every struggle…! Love the poem, captures the essence of our spiritual journey!
