Poetry: Choices

Life is composed of choices. As a Christian, I make every attempt to submit any choics of consequence to prayerful consideration (e.g. not things like which sandwich to have for lunch). This poem came out of a time of many choices and I guess the thing we all strive for is after having made our choice we will have no regrets, knowing it was the best we could do.

Choices

God, grant my prayerful plea
look deep into the heart of me
help me to choose as you direct
the right and true path to select
and when the moment passes on
with no regrets I carry on

Grace and peace to your day and may God be with you in all the choices you have to make today. May you go to your rest with no regrets.

Update: George posted this response, which I think is wonderful and I did not want it to get lost in the comments.

With this regret I carry on:
That I had swerved when called to serve.
The path I chose seemed good to me,
Though where it led brought ought to Thee.

Yet this regret is not my end.
You lead me on Your Way to live.
The path you show is good for me,
And where it leads is home with Thee.
