The Zigzag Path


We climbed the height by the zigzag path
And wondered why -- until
We understood it was made zigzag
To break the force of the hill.

A road straight up would prove too steep
For the traveler's feet to tread;
The thought was kind in its wise design
Of a zigzag path instead.

It is so often in our daily life;
We fail to understand
That the twisting  way our feet must tread
By love alone was planned.

Then murmur not at the winding way,
It is our Father's will
To lead us Home by the zigzag path,
To break the force of the hill.


  But he knoweth the way that I take: 
when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. 
Job 23:10

Sometimes we cannot understand our path through life,
but God knows best and
all we need to do is trust His wisdom
and follow His leading.
