Five Minute Friday-Day 12 of 31 Writing Challenge


I stepped first,

ahead of You,

and fell in broken mess.

Had I paused

and prayed instead

You’d have led my steps.

In selfish desire

I ran alone,

making plans to win.

In line first,

I never wait

for You to say begin.

And when I seek

and hear Your will,

My mind shouts, “you know more.”

Then wonder why

I fall behind those

who chose Your door.

Father God, help me see,

that first is really last.

And what I think

may never be

within Your perfect plan.

Slow and steady I will move,

guided by Your way.

And first will be

Your will for me,

as I stop and pray.
