Background on the Poem “Direction“
There are times in life when we don’t know which way to go. During these times, if we seek the Lord, then our mission, our purpose, and his will becomes clearer. Of course, it also means that we have to still do our part. Our part involves intentionality, setting goals, and aligning our will with his. We also need wisdom discerning in whom we should confide God’s great revelation.
I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the ramparts. I will watch to see what He will say to me and how I will answer my reproof. Then the LORD answered me: “Write down this vision and clearly inscribe it on tablets, so that a herald may run with it. For the vision awaits an appointed time;Habakkuk 2: 1-3
Listen- to every word that I say.
Vision-making it plain, don’t you sway.
Write it-on your heart and your mind.
Do it-all in wisdom and my time.
Show it-to your siblings, the believers.
Hold it-From the wicked, the deceivers.
