My Staff

by Mark Weinrich

It is in the crossing
from stone to stone
knowing I have no
balance on my own.

It is leaning on Him,
as my faithful staff, 
learning the next step,
the right path. 

It is stepping out 
from stone to stepping
stone, discovering 
I am never alone.

It is fixing my faith
when the trail is dim
knowing I can cross
any chasm with Him.
