Poems Words Of Encouragement By christy Bahr / last year Share Tweet Pin Share Are We There Yet? I once set out on a journey Oh, so many years ago Had no idea where I was going I was just too young to know. Anxious to be at my destination My dad wasn’t going fast enough The traffic lights and many stops Made the going pretty rough. We stopped for gas, we stopped for food It seems we stopped everywhere I took no time for scenery I just wanted to get there (Where ever there was) Of the things I recall from vacation, The one thing I’ll not forget Is the hundred times I asked my dad, “Daddy, are we there yet?” Times had changed, and I was older I took a journey of my own I headed down a broad highway Yet I felt so all alone The pot-holes and the darkness Made the going pretty rough And no matter how I tried, I just couldn’t do enough. I was exhausted on that journey My travels had left me weak The emptiness inside me Was oh, so very deep I didn’t admire the scenery Everything seemed dark and cold I was searching for a detour The obstacles were getting old Of all the things on that trip The one I’ll never forget Is looking for a detour And asking myself, “Am I there yet? I then set out on a journey With my Father at the wheel After all I’d been through, How refreshing that did feel. Now of my destination I am completely sure And with Jesus at the wheel I am safe and secure I take the time to enjoy the scenery And the blessings he gives to me He’s in control when things go wrong And he supplies my every need Every once in a while The going does get rough But there’s no need for me to worry For his grace will be enough But I’m definitely not perfect And sometimes I forget There are times I’m tempted to ask, “Daddy, are we there yet?” Then he reminds me that we’ll be there soon And the faith in me begins to rise In my mind, I imagine him Splitting the eastern skies!
