That My Steps Might Be Steady

Oh, that my steps might be steady, 
keeping to the course You set; 
Then I'd never have any regrets 
in comparing my life with your counsel...
Give me insight so I can do 
what you tell me— 
my whole life one long, 
obedient response.
Psalm 119:33-34

Oh, that my steps might be steady...
The key is allowing Your Holy Spirit to lead.
All day long I take steps;
some of them take me off course.
But all day long, You speak to me.
Your love and mercy follow me
and get me back on track.
Course adjustments are required 
constantly to stay the course.
Doing what You tell me--
a lifelong response to Your voice--
is my assurance that I will live
the life You have for me.
Jesus, everything You are 
is everything I want to be.
By Your grace, I will become 
more like You every day.
That truly is the greatest miracle--
that You desire to transform us
and help us become more like You.
I place my heart in Your hands
and surrender everything I am.
I know that I will have to do this
over and over again.
The narrow road of walking by Your voice
is where I want to be found all day long.
You have kept my feet from slipping.
So now I can walk in Your presence.
O God, in Your life-giving light.
Psalm 56:13
