Lead Me On

This path you lead me on
winds through dark wetlands 
- reflective pools of my past.

And if I stop to glimpse
the past desires to pull me in,
muddy pools lurk to reclaim me.

And I, anxious of stumbling
into pools of darkness
lost to your joy and light,

search and find Your eyes.
You let my past fall away,
to find joy in You instead. 

Is this not the sufficiency I seek,
my intimacy in Christ.
And You lead me on.
