Progress is a non-linear process,
Less a beginner's algebra graph
And more an EKG
Or a polygraph.
When i grow frustrated by this,
Let me remember:
Why expect anything less or other
From the God who knew
The best route from Egypt to Canaan
Was no straight line?
His object is not efficiency
So i put one foot in front of the other,
Eyes on my Savior,
Letting him catch me when the waves catch my eye,
Trusting progress to the nail-pierced hands.
