Poem About God Walking With Us On Our Journey

I wrote this poem after visiting Natural Bridge in Virginia. I was inspired after seeing one particular photo that I took that showed a bend in the trail. I also wrote this poem one day prior to the funeral for my father-in-law and read the poem at the service.

The Bend In The Path

Published: April 2015

We are all on a journey
A trek here on earth
We are all on a path
That started with birth

Our paths are connected
Our paths are apart
Our paths are lit with sunshine
And at times in the dark

Some paths are long and narrow
Others short, winding ways
At times the rocks and the hills
Go on endless for days

There are things that lay waiting
There are twists, turns and strife
And who knows what lies
'Round the bend of our life

No matter the place
On your path you may be
There is a Guide who will lead
He is Jesus, you see

He knows all our paths
From beginning to end
He is the one who sees
What lies 'round the bend

So why would we travel
Without the help of our Guide
When He is so willing
To walk by our side

God always knows how to put a smile on me when I am surrounded with troubles. He provides me with everything I need. He knows what I need before I ask. He will never ever forsake me because I am his child.

You are absolutely right, we need God every minute of the day to give us the strength to bear our burdens and trials, for God is in control and we just need to learn to trust him. If we think we have control over our lives, then try spending the day in the hospital of a child with leukemia. He may not give us what we think we need at the time, but we need to have faith in our God.
