America Tonight Radio Interview with Kate Delaney

I wrote the following Wednesday night before I flee asleep. It is the result of most of my Bible and devotional reading the last month being about patience in waiting on God, knowing that his time is the right time.

FORWARD, ONE STEP THEN OTHERS
Forward, forward, never still. Forward in God’s will. The seas may rise With waves of lies. Nightfall may stay Blinding our way. We may trip and fall Then hear God’s call, Knowing the way Has long been made. May we never fade In knowing one day The goal we will forever reach The waters by a sandy beach. One step at a time, In, not out of rhyme, With forward looking thoughts In all we have sought. Forward always, In all our days. Building on yesterday’s faith, Never easing our pace From the trials of our journey. At the end of the trail we will see The value of perseverance, Of prayerful reverence, Of finding our way To the truth of life God has for us, Trusting in Jesus.
