~THE TRAIL UP AHEAD~
"High mountains to cross, a looming ahead,
Valleys between them with skys all of lead.
Strength is much needed and courage from God,
Stark and so lonely the trail often trod.
On mountain tops clear, air drops awaken,
Notions of conquest, heights can be taken.
Ecstatic new thoughts with sun radiant hues,
Say joy and new hope may harvest their dues.
Down in the valley we see the trail wind,
Where breeze oft is not and mud and feet bind.
So heavy the air and marshy the plain,
Must souls all descend to find no real gain?
By faith we can see our Savior so dear,
Oh glory to God, the trail now is clear.
Standing ahead on summit so high,
Or flowering lily in valleys so nigh.
We can not stumble, nor falter or moan,
Here ne'er did utter complaints neither groan.
In heights or valleys He will be my guide,
He always is close, so close to my side.
Cheer up then my brother, leave no worries and care,
Let's show the whole world that Jesus is there.
Envision the summit and no longer dally,
He colors your skys and lilys your valley."
