The Steps I Walk Upon

IMG_1817Here’s a reflection I wrote after gathering for worship this past weekend at Eastbrook Church during our series on the Psalms of Ascent.  Not a finely fashioned poem, but more like poetic reflections on my life journey and the grace of God oozing through each step.

the steps I walk upon
woven day by day and year after year
with strands of silvery sadness and vibrant joy
I feel those textures singing underfoot

the steps I walk upon
chiseled from the bones and dreams
of those who have walked before me
I hear those voices speaking in my ears

the steps I walk upon
ever behind me and ever before
through the hungry heights and the distressed depths
until cresting the final ridge to home

these steps I walk upon
illumined by the One hanging in the sky
eternal light shining undimmed through the darkness 
who walked before and walks ever behind

these steps I walk upon
not steps merely my own but those laid 
by the One who cut and carved the pathway
I know His Voice ringing in my steps
