How

Written by: Brandlynn Young

How will I decide my own fate?
Or has it been decided for me?
Will my skies be clear or blue?
Or will the days ahead be stormy?

I am now standing at the crossroads
Not knowing which way to go
Which path will lead me to where I'm headed
Which path, which rocky road?

I look ahead and see one path
The days ahead are clear
The other path promises storms and rain,
See the storm clouds gathering near?

The road that has the least resistance
Is the one that is tempting to take
But if I must suffer, bring on the rain
I'll suffer for Jesus Christs sake

Bring on the lightening, let it strike
Bring on the windy gales
With Christ as my captain, I'll ride with Him
Face the wind and raise my sails

Christ is my captain, I'm under Him
I must obey all His commands
If the path is rough, so be it Lord
I'll do as Your will demands.

So if the storm clouds rage round about me
I'll stand and have no fear
If the path I travel brings sadness
You'll wipe away every tear

I know sometimes when I get weak
Life's troubles have taken my song
I know it's in my weakness, Lord
In my weakness, You make me strong

How will I know my fate in life?
Through Faith I can clearly see
I'll stay close to Him who is leading me on
Because I know He is guiding me.
