road work

Good and upright is the
therefore he instructs
sinners in the way.
He leads the humble in what
is right,
and teaches the humble his
All the paths of the LORD are
steadfast love and
for those who keep his
covenant and his
(Psalm 25:8-10)

on this journey called life,
i find myself full
of potholes,
you come along, filling
them in,
the Holy Spirit, perched
high up on the roller,
smoothing out the mixture
of faithfulness and love;

sit on the side of the
truck, carefully guiding
the brush, painting
the lines down the road with
your reflective grace,
so that, on the foul weather days
i will no longer drive off
the edge;

are lifted up high
in the cherry-picker,
checking every pole
along the way, changing
the Light so
i can always
find my way home,
through the shadows,
to you.
