    My Salvation,My Sins,My wants,My needs......These are the things that I face
    at my crossroad,
    To my left see nothing but fun and laughter,
    To my right I see tears and Pain
    In front of me I see the open arms of eternal forgiveness
    In back of me I see no change
    All around me I feel the presence of a spirit unwilling to leave me standing alone
    Only at times of turning to that road of sin...do I feel that presence is gone...
    Confused and unsure I just stand here motionless...oblivious to the rest of the world
    I'm lonely I say so I move to my wants and take a deep breath...get it together girl!
    My wants are what brought me to the to the roads of sin....until my needs grabbed on to my hand...My sins turned me away from that road of salvation....that I'm scared to even start on again.....

    there is a road

    we all must tarry
    it is a lonely road
    ...narrow is its path
    long is the way
    to salvation and life
    but the light
    guides us
    leads us
    through our course.
    though the grass may seem greener
    ...prettier across the way
    more attractive to the eye
    more appealing to the touch
    its sustenance cannot sustain us

    LOOK...behold what is GOOD
    SET ASIDE all things that may cause you to stray
    DO NOT YIELD to temptations of flesh and wealth
    for neither can give you LIFE.
    BE STRONG in the faith that saves you
    that originates with the one that LOVES YOU

    THERE IS NO CROSSROAD ALONG YOUR PATH
    there is only one road...THE RIGHT ROAD
    for HE has said
    "I AM THE WAY AND THE LIGHT
    NO ONE APPROACHES THE FATHER
    BUT THROUGH ME."

    you know what you have to do.:)

    LET THE RIVER FLOW.

    it is so hard when
    you're trying to figure out
    who you are
    sometimes you feel
    like two different people
    at odds with each other
    give it up
    you think
    but you have to keep going
    don't ever stop
    keep working on you
    the most important project
    you'll ever have
    keep trying
    keep striving
    and know that
    you don't have to be a slave
    to wants and needs

    Datpoeticfemme, uncertainty is a hard road to tread, and you phrased it so well. Baller and gempis very positive flows you added in your responses.

    Life is full of crossroads
    Decisions
    Rewards and consequences.....very nice flow indeed!!!!!

    I hate to say it, but it will not get easier
    Why?
    It's designed to make you stronger....the more resistance, the more fight comes out of you.....then you find out how strong you really are

    Oh yeah....

    Definitely feel U on this.

    Each time U startt walkin' down that path, your desire will get U further...

    The key is 2 never give up, even though sometimes U give in.
