The Journey – A Christian Poem for the Lenten Season


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

Hello, everyone! I have recently published my first chapbook of Christian poems titled “A Voice in the Wilderness – A Chapbook of Poems about God”. This has been developed and polished over the past six months or so. I am happy with the final product and hope you find encouragement in the poems but also a validation that the spiritual life is not all sunshine and rainbows. We all struggle. We all have periods of questions and/or doubt. But it is the yearning that keeps us coming back for more and allows us to experience joy.
You can purchase either on Amazon or on my own bookstore (it is cheaper and has free shipping on my store) and is available on the Kindle and in paperback.
Amazon: Kindle Paperback
Inkspiration Books (my bookstore): Paperback

Thank you for your support!

  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!
