Sometimes my Christian life seems
A game of snakes and ladders.

I edge forward and backward
With the top a long way away.

Snakes lurk - even
After I throw a six. Some long.

Glimpses of heaven - I sometimes
Climb where Jacob looked.

Sometimes the top of a ladder
Is close to a serpents mouth.

Holy Spirit, help me
To overleap the snakes.

Lord Jesus, help me
To reach and climb the ladders.

Father, help me to remember
The home prepared for me.
