Along the Way

Along the way
we will cross
the same river
more than once

learning the same lesson



in different ways 
at different times


depending on ourselves 
and our own strength

whether we go our own way
or choose to follow His

we try
the hard way,
easy way, narrow way,
wandering away,
losing our way

we  succeed,
stumble, fail,
and try again
we ever finally
reach a
 temporary destination

only to find
we are not in control
of the lessons
only whether
we are willing
to learn

I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.  No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,  I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Phillipians  3:12-15
