The Unmarked Trail

Jesus has imprisoned my attention, my faith He has relentlessly stirred.

Jesus has turned my misadventures into benefit, my losses into gain.

Jesus has jettisoned the contraband of my soul, and pointed me down the pleasing paths of life.

I have found spacious places to dwell.

He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me. (Psalm 18:19)

This unmarked trail of faith I ponder. It has led me to the land where peace became my governor, righteousness my ruler.

I have very slowly learnt that when all is stripped away, I have found all that I want.

There is nothing I want but you Lord, for it is the most wonderful thing to be near You.

Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you... But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds. (Psalm 73:25 & 28)
