Original Song – “My Life’s Journey”

My Life’s Journey is a song about realizing we need guidance as we go through life – specifically in the areas of patience, courage and wisdom.  It’s God who has called us into being and has a plan and purpose for our lives.  It’s only in living within His will that we can fulfill the meaning and purpose of our lives as he guides us through His hand, light and word.  My wish and prayer is that God would bless and keep you, guide your footsteps as you journey through life and provide you with life in abundance!  “As I travel on my way, Through my life’s journey, Along the path of life, I know your hand guides me, And it’s ‘gonna be alright.”

I recorded my original song “My Life’s Journey” in two takes on Set 6 in 1996, and as usual the second take turned out the best. The song speaks to the winding path we walk through life, and trusting God to show us the way, “As I travel on my way, Through my life’s journey, Along the path of life, I know your hand guides me, And it’s ‘gonna be alright…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

(Note: Esus4* refers to a simpler version of the chord than the traditional guitar finger placement.  Also, emailed versions of these songs lose their chord alignment and formatting, so refer to the original post and/or the scanned lyric sheet as your guide!)
