God's will or yours?

"And lo, I am with you always." - Matthew 28:20

God's will ... different? 
Can it be
Is it true 
What we believe to be God's will one day
may not be another day.

How can we 
follow the path 
we believe God has laid out for us 
if it may change at a moment's notice 

Have you stopped to consider ...

We can follow the Lord, yes, 
but we each can make changes, 
detours along the way
that may prove to be 
vastly different from God's plan.

Have we asked God 
about the detour we ponder taking
or have we made our own decision 

Is it right or or is it wrong --
to seek God's will 
perhaps find it
but ignore it
to discredit it 
to say no, God's doesn't know. 
I know. 

God's will ... different? 

Perhaps it is our will 
that is different
out of step
not in tune with His

If we are really His believers, 
His followers, 
living under His truth,
in obedience to Him,
our will would be His will.

We would look anew 
every day 
at what He 
has to say 
to us.

We would continually 
ask of Him ...

Lord, is this the way?
Lord, what will you have for me today? 
Lord, show me how to get out of this pity party.
Lord, where do you want me to go today?
Lord, who do you want me to be a blessing to today?
Lord, is this the job you want me to continue?
Lord, what is your desire for me this day?

"Low, I am with your always"
Jesus tells us 

Where are we
Are we with Him?

Have we forgotten 
what He has taught us
Do we follow and listen 
only to the sounds 
of our steps 
within our heart and mind, 
within our personal observations
and experiences 

can we truthfully say 
we seek God's will 
and rejoice when we do find
