We walk this land in hopes of a bigger plan.
Listening to stories of the promise land.
Learning about our father and all he has to offer.
Slowing down to notice the little things that surround us.
Teaching those who seek out the truth of our father
Showing them it is ok to be imperfect.
Humans are merely flesh living out their stay.
Preparing themselves and making choices,
that will decide where they go after they die.
Talk to your father like he is there,
because he hears all your prayers.
Never alone do you walk,
As a believer he is your rock.
He will comfort you when times are tough,
Hold your hand when you want to give up.
Give you strength when you don’t have enough.
But most of all give you unconditional love.
