Have you ever read "Pilgrims Progress", it's really long and hard to read because it's written in olde English, so I set out to write a shorter version about a journey of faith, hope you enjoy.
I searched everywhere for Love but she was no where to be found.
Wandering down many dark and rocky paths but none seemed to lead to her.
Afraid of the dark, I tried to light my own lamp but none of my matches would spark.
I tried every key in every locked door but none would reveal the secrets of Love's heart.
Did I lose Hope?
No, I never let her out of my sight, she was my friend and guide in the wilderness.
Did I lose Faith?
Faith walked before me in the darkness, holding a light so I would not stumble.
Did I lose Courage?
Courage was my companion who fought beside me against the beasts of the night.
Did I find the key?
The truth is, I didn't need a key, only Wisdom to know the right door.
In hindsight, I can see very clearly; Wisdom showed me the door that would open with just a knock, Courage was always with me, Faith lit the path before me, Hope comforted me in the wilderness.
The whole time I thought, I was lost and alone. The truth is, I was never alone and turns out, I was on exactly the right path that I needed to be on to find the door, that held the secrets of Love's heart. I did not need a key, only a knock and God answered for he is Love. If you find God, you have peace, for he will give you all the desires of your heart, for he is faithful and true.
7Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
