The Road that Leads to Heaven
Photography & Poem by Norma Beaird
The road that leads to Heaven is a road that’s long and steep,
Sometimes it’s full of rocks and mud and cracks within the street.
Sometimes the road is winding and the stops to rest are few,
We go around in circles and we don’t know what to do.
And then sometimes the narrow road reveals no end in sight,
You travel long and travel hard and deep into the night.
You look for signs to light the path and signs cannot be found,
In fear you steer off course again and you must turn around.
The road that leads to Heaven is a road that’s hard indeed,
But on this road you won’t be lost for Christ will take the lead.
He’ll guide you on the dusty road and through the wind and rain,
He’ll take the wheel when all you see is hurt, despair and pain.
For God has sent a Road Map that will safely lead you home,
To where the Lord will meet us at His bright and shining throne.
The road to Heaven is a road that’s sure and yours to find,
For on this road are paths that lead to love and peace of mind.
The road may bend and curve a while until the journey’s end,
Just know that God was steering you for He’s your dearest Friend.
The Lord may take you down some roads that you don’t understand,
But don’t turn back or be afraid of God’s unchanging Hand.
For with His hand He leads us to a cool and peaceful shore,
Where sorrows are forgotten when we call His name once more.
The trip may leave you battle-scarred by burdens you will bear,
But as you turn the curves of life, the Lord is standing there.
So don’t despair my friend when life is not as you had planned,
You won’t get lost for God will lead you to the Promised Land.
Don’t exit off, just hang on to the Road Map you’ve been given,
For this my friend will guide you on the road that leads to Heaven.
