Step Ahead on Solid Ground

Like a mountain standing 
Rock solid over time
Is our Lord protecting 
In our long hard climb.

He helps to keep stepping 
On this long hard road;
A path on solid ground
The Lord has bestowed.

In the right frame of mind
We praise the Lord today
With sureness in the way,
We start without delay.

Even in frustration,
We feel broken today,
Things drifting … changing
But it will be okay.

For many things are built 
On shifting sand
But we will withstand
Along the way as planned.

    Read this poem as encouragement to step ahead one step at a time on the solid ground the Lord has provided.
