My Soul

Oh, ageless soul,
confined inside me.
Abiding time,
aware of my aging, ebbing.
You wait expectantly, 
anxiously hoping
That I will walk right roads
And choose choice pathways 
of obedience in Christ.
Thank you,
my soul
for urging me, 
nudging me
toward a joyous eternity!

Choose you this day whom ye will serve…but as for me
and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15

    Enjoyed reading your work....I have always liked that scripture. My dad was a deep faith person, black and white. I can see shades of grey. Wish I didn't sometimes.
