On This Day that You Lead

compass

On this day that you lead

      know that it is within you to show others the way.

On this day that you lead

     remember that sacrifice is the surrender of pride and the victory of devotion.

On this day that you lead

     hold fast to the truth others have used to frame and construct your character.

On this day that you lead

     give yourself to the destiny of example and inspiration.

On this day that you lead

     drink in the rich wine of wisdom that mentors have poured into your life.

On this day that you lead

     rest in a faith of things unseen and a hope of desires not yet realized.

On this day that you lead

     may God bless and keep you in every moment of decision

     may He shine a light of understanding in every circumstance

     and may He protect you with the peace that flows from his hand.
