My Traveling Shoes

Done found myself a new pair of travelin' shoes to wear on this leg of my journey. Handmade to fit and suit me just right, supportin' and comfortin' me each step of the way.They are wild and colorful as I chose them to be, they suit my personality.
I've traveled so many miles in shoes that someone else bought for me, plain, poorly fitted, worn, second hand, hand me downs. Ohh, they hurt my feet and took me places that I didn't need to go, places that I didn't want to go. For many years I put them on. I was told it was my duty, but my heart was heavy and my cares so many.

I own these shoes. They are mine.

Only God Knows



Victims of Circumstance
Could there really be just one chance?
How narrow is the way,
If it’s paved with grace?

Transcending time and space
Truth cannot be held in a box
Constantly changing shape
A moving paradox.

Judgments come so easy
But what do we see?
Hearts, motives, purposes,
Only God knows these.

Searching Souls they do abound
Making God in our own image
Empty words fall to the ground
Falling to the ground

Doctrine, Divisive Facts
Where can we find you, Lord?
Where we least expect
In some loving act.

Judgments come so easy
But what do we see?
Hearts, motives, purposes,
Only God knows these.
Only God knows these.
Only God knows.
