In the Desert

Jeremiah 6:16

“Stand in the ways and see”

But if I’ll just go on.
Without standing in the ways.
Why cannot I do so?

I don’t even know, where to go.

“and ask for the old paths”

Old paths – way to the future?

But if however I do look back,
what shall I see?

You were there with me
even when I didn’t realize it.
You were there with me
even when I didn’t want it.

“where the good way is and walk in it”

What is the good way?
How can I know it?
How?

Now I remember.
You’ll lead us when we pray for You.

”then you will find rest for your souls”

So, I’ll find a way shown by You,
I’ll walk in that way with You,
and find rest given by You.

What would I have without You?
