He goes before me

“It is the Lord who goes before you; he will be with you and will never fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be dismayed.”
(Deuteronomy 31:8)

Who goes before me?
I know, yet I question.
I ask this when I’m lost.
I falter, faith cracks.

Many moments of this.
I lose Him in despair.
My life falls apart.
And I’m blinded by fear.

I dissect this. I peal it off.
There’s a layer beneath.
My mistakes. My wrongs.
More and more layers.

I feel remorse.
I seek forgiveness.
Yet, I turn away.
Each and every time.

In my journey of life.
I lose Him so often.
Yet, He’s never lost me.
He goes before me.
