Detour

September 29, 2020

Life threw a roadblock in my way.
It just appeared; I had no say.

No yellow sign, Detour Ahead.
I found my help from God instead.

I gathered comfort from His Word,
The feelings that His Spirit stirred.

It forced me out of my routine,
Now shut inside, no change of scene.

It gave me time to search my heart.
What’s left undone when I depart?

What can I do while I still live?
What do I have that I can give?

It came to me to spend some time
To share my heart with words of rhyme.

It soothes my soul to read and pray,
To honor Him with words I say.
