keep thou, my feet

There are things, decisions, of other people that I do not understand. They are the type of things that make the inside of my chest feel hollow. They cause a dull, aching feeling when I breathe deep. It’s a feeling I’ve been acquainted with before. If left alone, it burrows deeper into the soul—penetrating confidence and challenging faith… a dangerous place to be.

This time, I asked God to fill up that hollow space with His love. I asked Him to turn the ache into something beautiful. And when I finally woke up this morning, these words were in my mind above all others:

keep thou, my feet.

i do not ask to see the distant scene…

one step enough for me.
