The Narrow Roads Discerning 1

""At last... at last!" - as a sweet rejoinder- to Him my soul cried out aloud, "at last... !" - as I marveled in the benignity of my Lord"" "For imparting to me-the liberal blessing- of my life-and for giving me His eternal- assurances... and for delivering me; returning me to a veracious, and overt; amenable position-of-hope-and faith- in Him - yes-for-purging-and lifting; empowering and molding... maturing me, indemnifying- me in His certitude, and- enduring graciously... the-horrid-penalty; of my willful prides- contumacy." "For ne’er- to trammel- the ambling- of my committed; volition... in the greater wisdom- and grace of their instruction; I willingly did revolt in sheer- defiance before His tender- eyes of mercy - (amid the-futile campaign; (of my own bitterness)) - distinguishing only- those weary days- apart from the- welcome and- gentle fervor, of His embrace - and so, through this- detachment, and His- patient hands-my- heart’s longing- was brought- to know- compassion; and to be absolvitory - as able today and thankful to Him to see - of the many roads I have peregrinated down; illuminated upon this narrow path, of God’s; all inclusive-way - it is all I have come- to truly-discern; of an aeolian peace." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ (~) ~ (~) ~ (~) ~ (~) ~ (~) ~ (~) ~ (~) ~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ http://allpoetry.com/ban/show/6960 Author notes "King Davids secret was his thirst for God's abiding mercy in his life, and to be taught this and move to show it in all he said and did... ."
