Follow His Footsteps

From Romans 12:1-2:  “I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.  Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

Imperfect humans

Walking darkest trails

World twists upside down

Christ calls, without fail


World crying out with

Endless, empty claims

Filled with dead end thoughts

Christ drowns looming flames


Noisy distractions

Countless temptations

Follow His footsteps

Christ’s supplications


Waking to darkness

God’s will lights each day

Struggling with life’s sin

Christ bridges the way


Share genuine love

Holding fast to good

Serving the Father

Christ transforms driftwood


Zealous in spirit

Rejoicing in hope

Walk with humbleness

Christ’s love helps us cope


Marked with our Lord’s truth

Walk with Christian steps

Soul and mind renewed

Follow Christ’s footsteps

From Hebrews 6:19-20:  “We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters the inner shrine behind the curtain, where Jesus, a forerunner on our behalf, has entered, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”

  1. Saying “this is my favorite one” would make my family smile. I often say they about every song I hear. But truly, this poem IS one of my favorites. I was just reading in Romans this morning. I see many people glorify men that simply aren’t Jesus. And I choose to keep my eyes and focus on HIM. God bless you, Richard.
