No Detour

Today is the day
I know that for sure
I need to follow God’s plan
Without any detours.

He’s been so good to me
Even giving me the key to Heaven’s gate
I guess He loves me more than I know
He’ll take me home I don’t know the date.

I’ve tried to stay on the righteous path
But I fail a lot of times
Sometimes I find I’m on a detour
I just can’t follow signs.

So many things go through my mind
Like a cold winter wind on a really dark night
It goes round and round and never stops
Until God says you finally got this one right.

Don’t take the detour the devil throws in your path
He’s such a liar and a fooler of men
He’ll give you whatever you want
Just to make you sin.

If a GPS that would take you to Heaven’s gate
I’d program mine so it would be fate
I wouldn’t put in any detours
I wouldn’t want to be late.

There is one GPS that you can use
It’s called the Bible if you don’t know
If you read it and follow what it says
As a Christian you can grow.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
