Hitchhike To Heaven

“My Load is Heavy, Along This Road To Heaven“

It seemed like most all my relationships in life were

Based on an unrealistic image of my father. When I

Was converted to Christianity, I looked to God as I did to him,

Not able to see the acceptance and love freely offered

To me, thinking I had to do something to earn His favor.

My experience had become too heavy to bare, looking

To others to get me to heaven.

It is a difficult road I have taken,

My load is heavy and I am

Forsaken, along this road to

Heaven.

Preachers, teachers, friends,

I look to all to get me in.

Holding my thumb up high,

Hoping for a ride, they wish me

Well and pass me by.

I don’t know how long I can do

This, I cry, I weep, all the rules I

Keep. I run and run, busy, busy,

Barely taking a breath, lest I

Falter and be left.

Everyday I confess, what more

Can I do? Throwing up my hands,

I quit, there is nothing I can do,

It is a gift!

A promise given to us –

“Look unto Me and be saved…for I am God,

And there is no other.” Isaiah 45:22
