The Path of the Righteous
By Ken L Birks


Drawn by a light shining upon my dark soul, I turn and wonder.

What is this light that reveals such darkness within now dimming.

Focusing on the light that shines so bright I sense an intense drawing.

A path often ignored becomes more visible as it beckons me to consider.

Entering the path with much apprehension, the light calls me to surrender.


As I step forward into the unknown, a newfound peace floods my mind.

All apprehension and fear begin to dissipate as faith and courage unbind.

With newfound excitement I press forward in anticipation for what is coming.

A surge of enlightenment fills my mind as I taste the fruits of the path emerging

The newness that is discovered fills me with a sense of invincibility, now rising.


With a new sense of freedom, I press on following the light, so awed.

I am led to an encounter with the light now revealed as the Son of God.

Before going further, He shows me a locked gate that must be unsealed.

He holds the key in His hand and says, in Him, I must now trust and yield.

I realize, before I can receive the key, I must confess Him as Lord.


I bow down as He speaks with such affection and kindness while I rejoice.

I sense His love washing over me as I yield to the warmth of His voice.

As He hands me the key, I notice several are now attached.

These are the keys to the kingdom you will need for the journey, He indicates.

Speaking of trials, treasures, gifts, and blessings, the keys, He illuminates.


From faith to faith I now depend with righteousness revealed in abundance.

Each step takes me further into an unknown path filled with mysteries, numerous

My mind is filled with revelation as mysteries become clearer, stabilizing my faith.

Destiny and purpose fill my thoughts with peace and security as I move, yielded.

No longer afraid or apprehensive, I delight in the path now revealed.


Darkness within that once ruled my soul, disappears with His light, now reigning.

The keys given opened His treasures, giving insight in trials and hardship.

Spiritual gifts opened with His precious keys brought forth purpose so burning.

Like the light of dawn, the path shines brighter and brighter with His glory revealed.

I now await the day that will be illuminated to all who discover the path, so shining.


Proverbs 4:18 The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.


This poem expresses how God intially draws us unto Himself and plants our feet on the path of righteousness and what it means to unlock the keys to going further in our walk with Him.
