The Lord came to me like a dream one day
And asked, “why do you sorrow?”
I answered, “Lord my life is so full of pain,
I can’t face one more tomorrow.”
The Lord sat down beside me
And gently took my hand.
He said, “Let Me explain to you
And then you’ll understand.
Each sorrow is a stepping stone
You must surmount each day,
And every stepping stone you climb
Is a sorrow that’s passed away.
The road of life is a mountainside
With crevices in which to be caught,
But as you struggle on your way
I, the Rock, will lend support.
Every stepping stone you climb
Makes spirit and heart grow strong.
Exercising character and faith
This road seems painful and long.
The way is paved with stepping stones
To uplift your heart and soul
Though difficult, they aid your way
To a City paved with gold.
I know that you are tired
For I too have walked this way,
My sorrows did they multiply
But I cleared many stones away.
I left My Rock to lift you up
I left behind My story.
To give you strength to make your climb
To that special place in glory.
And never fear, the Rock is here
You’ll never climb this mountain alone
Surmount life’s sorrows, continue on
For they are but stepping stones.”
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all ways, acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
