The Turning Point - Terry, 40

I stood at the turning point, frightened and scared

The mighty decision, was all that I feared

I looked for support, none was to be found

Only two separate tracks, lay there on the ground.


One seemed so simple, like the way I had come

No turning was needed, I just had to run

Downhill it was, and breakneck the pace

The outcome was sure—a dark gloomy place.


Then I turned to the other way, narrow and straight

And fear filled my being, resentment and hate

It seemed to go upward, to a far better place

But did I have to turn? - Oh what a disgrace!


At the start of the road was a crevasse of fear

A host of unknowns, and nobody there

I looked up for answers—oh what should I do?

I hadn't the courage to see either way through.


Then a voice from above whispered sweet in my ear

Yes you can do it, there's no need to fear

Make the turn, make the change, I'm sure it is best.

You leap in faith, and ill do the rest.


So I turned on that day, to a power more than me

I so fully surrendered, I gave him the key

I jumped the ravine, to walk in his will

And count on his nearness, over every hill.


And Today I look back, with thanks on that place

Where God in his goodness, showered his grace

He was there at the turning point, being my friend

And He’ll stay there beside me, right till the end


And I'm thankful to say, on this straight narrow way

God never leaves me, he's there every day

Showered with blessings, and grace to get through

I certainly hope you find this way too.
