Lord, I Seek Your Hand

In the darkness I seek Your hand to guide me along each road ahead,
Though I often struggle and slip, unable to see where Your feet have tread;
As I strain and force my eyes open wide, I still fall short and lose my stride,
I long to trust Your vision for my life; with my own, I simply wander and collide.
I run ahead and lag behind, I want to walk in tandem.
I yearn to run with joy to fulfill Your sweetest bidding,
Instead I pridefully croak, “Lord, You’ve got to be kidding!”
It fills me with delight when you speak to me through Your Word,
And confirm it with the voice of others; then, Lord, I feel self-assured.
I have so far to journey before I’m near where I should be.
Lord, I seek Your hand.
With vision loss, touch is more important than actual sight and it’s more reassuring.  So I find that when I reach out for God’s hand, I have a better grip on my life and the direction I’m headed. His hand steadies me in all aspects of my life.
