Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
With faith my path ahead is clear.


by Verna Cole Mitchell

When I'm not sure what path to choose
And which direction to refuse,

When I can't see what lies concealed
And wait for truth to be revealed,

When problems occupy my mind,
And sweet release I cannot find,

When troubles seem to linger near,
And all I do is fret and fear,

When I'm bewildered and bemused,
And all my thoughts become confused,

When straight ahead the way is blurred,
And not a voice of hope is heard,

. . . . . .

Those times I do not hesitate
Upon God's Word to meditate.

Then humbly, I, before Him kneel
And feel His presence, close and real.

I offer Him my earnest prayers
And cast on Him my deepest cares.

Then, when I cannot see His face,
I'll trust in His enduring grace.

I know His promises are true;
Each day He'll surely see me through.

Though difficulties lie ahead,
By His strong hand will I be led.
