Decisions (#WritePhoto)

Thursday photo prompt: Decisions #writephoto

Image:  Sue Vincent

Did I misread sign, or miss

(Ignore?) the signs entirely?

Too many decisions made

From desperation, fear, and

Someone else’s expectation.

Regrets, but yet… I’ve learned

Even worst decisions carry

Hidden wealth sewn deep in

Pockets of heartache… And

Now I know God is never

Surprised by my wrong turns…

Knowing that my vision fails

He’s gone ahead, to straighten

Path…show me a better way.

Faith-Walk (A to Z Challenge, Letter F)

Father of love and grace unfailing, You

Always hear my call, catch me as I fall, for You’re able

In every way to save, restore, shine new.

Triumph is sure; in Christ, I trust each battle’s won…Lord, Your

Hands hold my life together, heal…I’m hidden and well-anchored.

Wherever I am, You’ve gone ahead

Arranged my path with provision abundant.

Love’s voice is Shepherd, Water, Bread…for

King of my heart, I’ll wear destiny’s raiment.

Everlasting, Eternal (A to Z, Letter E)

Everything of this earthly life

Is temporary, fleeting, gone in

Blink of eye or with the wind.

Even memories are fragile

Some like gossamer veil

Tissue easily torn…

But my God is Everlasting

Forever Eternal…His great love

Too, ever-Present, binding me

With mercy, grace for Everyday.

Eyes! Look not so much on what is

Transient, but all that is unseen…

Grand gleaming glory, Everlasting.

Heart! Endeavor now, sow to Holy

Spirit…soon reap best Life Eternal’s

Rest, gift of Jesus’ sacrifice promised

To believers who receive Him… for

God desires that no one perish.

When curious faith-walk here does

End, He’ll call me to blessed mansion

Waiting…forever home, in Father’s house.

Destiny (A to Z, Letter D)




Faith-walk with God

Carries destiny* secured

Despite heart’s shipwrecks

Rock-strewn roads, unpaved

Paths…mountains of towering

Doubt, dark ravines deserted…

No poor choices, decisions unwise

Mistakes or undeniable sin can

Permanently derail, nor downspin

Deter, the course that’s sealed by

Covenant God…He is my Deliverer!**

Past, Present, Future…known to Him.

No one can override His power, or

Separate me from His love, good

Purpose…I’m drenched in His grace.

He is the Father who delights*** in me

Walks before, behind, alongside…

Guiding my journey, destiny.

Blessed Be the Bumblers (A to Z, Letter B)

Blessed be the bumblers…

Surely God has grace

For bent-halo’d angels

Residing here on Earth…the

Bungling blunderers among us

Stumbling along unmarked path.

Best of intentions, mostly…bent

Beneath burdens we lift, carry

Though Bible speaks quite clearly:

“Blessed be the Lord, who daily

Bears us up”.

He “loadeth us with benefits”

Perfection not expected…

Rewards the faith of bumblers

Hears, and answers prayer…

I know it’s true, ’cause I’m a

‘Bumbling-bungler’ authentic

With ‘great ideas” to share.

Blessed be the struggling stragglers

Bumbler-sheep, clueless wanderers…

Woebegone, but for Good Shepherd.
