A Glory Seed Devotional

Reflections…

There are times when it does us good to look over our shoulder and revisit days that live now in our memories. This morning spent some time reading some of my writings from 1994 and I came across one I titled Life’s Journey. And as I read it 20 years later it continues to speak to me about my life’s continuing journey.

Life’s Journey

Life’s like a journey on a road,

On and on we carry our load.

On this bumpy road.

Where does the road begin and where does it end?

 

Life’s like a journey upon the sea,

Tossed to and fro it seems we’ll always be.

On this sometimes restless and choppy sea.

Where does the sea begin and where does it end?

 

Life’s like a quest,

To search and to find the very best.

We look and we seek at times with no rest.

Where does the quest begin and where does it end?

 

Life’s like the sky,

As far and wide as we can fly.

There is no limit as we soar so high.

Where does the sky begin and where does it end?

 

Life’s like the dawn,

We stretch and we stir and start with a yawn.

And we realize that yesterday is gone.

Where does the dawn begin and where does it end?

 

Life’s like the night,

A time to take leave of our daily fight.

A time to prepare for the coming light.

Where does the night begin and where does it end?

 

Life’s really not so odd,

It begins and ends with God.

And he has made it his job

To see that our life with his does blend

This loving and giving God

Without a beginning or without an end.
