A couple weekends ago, some friends and I went hiking. Our planned one hour hike turned into a seven hour hike – six hours of which we were LOST. It was quite the adventure, and we were processing it for several days afterwards. After finally finding our cabin again (with HUGE amounts of guidance and strength from the Lord), I had trouble sleeping and came up with this song to reflect what we had learned.
(to the tune of “Blessings” by Laura Story)
We pray for guidance; we pray for peace
We pray that we’ll see a clue when we look through the trees
We doubt the pathway; we start to fear
Wond’ring every minute when the cabin will appear
And all the while, You hear each spoken need
Though we can’t see, Your hand is guiding every step
What if Your guidance comes through blindness
What if Your leading is through trust
What if 6 hours of endless hiking’s how You show that You’re with us
What if despite the vague directions
From the people that we met,
You knew exactly where we were at every step, we need not fret
Though we may not see the way,
Our faithful God will lead us home.
