Fork in the Road

Happy are those
    who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
    or sit in the seat of scoffers;
but their delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and on his law they meditate day and night.
They are like trees
    planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
    and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.

The wicked are not so,
    but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked will perish.



Psalms and Poetry, there is already a relationship there. I pray this builds on that relationship. Inspired by Psalm 1, Fork in the Road.


Friend when you come to a fork in the road
One path goes where hardship lives and flows.
The second trail is the way we find life.
The forked road leads us to joy or to strife.

When you find a fork in the road, take it.*
Pray God leads you where to go and see it.
Lord show me your way and help me make it.
When you find a fork in the road, take it.

When we face life’s decisions make a choice
To not decide just takes away your voice
Lord help me find my way, to you this day
Here’s a forked road, help me find your way.

When you find a fork in the road, take it.*
Pray God leads you where to go and make it.
Lord show me your way and help me make it.
When you find a fork in the road, take it.

To live this life for you I’ll find your joy.
To travel on life’s path in your employ
I’ll delight in you each day, and I say
When you find a fork in the road, take it.

When you find a fork in the road, take it.*
Pray God leads you where to go and make it.
Lord show me your way and help me make it.
When you find a fork in the road, take it.

Seeking the Genuine,
Keith
