The Wanderer

Adrift in a sea of perplexity.

That’s how it seems if Your not guiding me.

Cautiously each step I take with fear.

For the cause of not sensing Your presence near.

Why do I stumble on in dark of night?

When Only Your guidance will give to me sight.

I tremble and press on I merely survive.

It’s you and Your presence; that make me alive.

The Wanderers wondering,”Why is it so,

I sit here in misery when home I could go?”

God grace me with faith to arise and step out.

Deliver my soul from all angst and doubt.

Then I as a child could cling once again;

to He Who delivered my soul from all sin.

So there in your lap near the warmth of Your chest;

this wandering drifter could curl up and rest.

Gather Me Home Lord.

Just pictured this, when I woke up this morning. Have you ever been there?  Would you admit to it, if you have? Just ‘wondering’.
