For Doris

Just Enough Light
By Stormie O’Martian

Sometimes only the step I’m on,
or the very next one ahead,
is all that is illuminated for me.

God gives just the amount of light I need
for the exact moment I need it.

At those times I walk in surrender to faith,
unable to see the future
and not fully comprehending the past.

And because it is God who has given me
what light I have,
I know I must reject fear and doubt
that threatens to overtake me.

I must determine to be content where I am,
and allow God to get me where I need to go.

I walk forward,
one step at a time,
fully trusting that the light God sheds
is absolutely sufficient.
