Standing Firm When You've Lost Your Way
By Ken L Birks

In significance, “The righteous are bold as a lion,” You say!
Why do I, rather, find myself in a place of weakness and prey?
I cry out in desperation, feeling trapped in hopelessness, I stray.
Where is the life and victory promised, looking at tomorrow?
My feet slip into a bottomless pit, while drowning in sorrow.

How do I stand firmly in righteousness as I misstep and trip?
With eyes fastened to the hopelessness that surrounds me, I slip.
With the love and freedom, that’s promised, I’ve lost the grip.
In disparity, all I see is pain, turmoil, hate, and wrath.
Did I take a wrong turn somewhere and miss the path?

I must go back and retrace my steps and find the path, missed.
In Your Word, I must look again to see what was dismissed.
What was it, not taken heed to that was ignored and resisted?
What was it, not applied that allowed me to slip into despair?
Surely I will find it, when I look with diligence and seek it in prayer.

There it is; worthless things, selfish gain, envy and covetousness.
Turning my heart towards His Word in all things, my soul refreshes.
As I turn my heart away from worthless things, I stand firmly to attain.
I must not envy the wicked in their prosperity, seeking selfish gain.
Turning my heart from things below to above, the seed is firmly sown.

Dwelling in faithfulness and delighting in Him, my feet are firmly planted.
Committing and trusting my ways to Him, brings to pass desires, granted.
Taking heed, my righteousness shines to others as a beacon of light.
An abundance of peace fills my heart as I stand in Him, firmly planted aright.
Where did I go wrong? It’s so clearly stated! Blinded by self-will, I lost sight.
