On the Bridge..
On the bridge! Oh it’s a long way to my destination
Really I want to know where this leads
All I see isn’t what I envisioned
Is there any progress at all?
The landmarks look the same.
Should I turn back, at least, I know from where I came
But… something draws my attention to what’s beyond the bridge…my curiosity is awaken
But seriously, the landmarks are all the same, so how do I rate my progress?
Turning back seem so easy a decision, and, too easy a decision to make, I’ll rather not take it!
With eyes of anticipation and expectation level of over a hundred, I await what lies beyond of the bridge- dreams fulfilled, hopes met! Or would it just be what I left before the bridge?
Do I have the answers? My mind is racing! Anxiety level is rising! Calm down babe! Look! The bridge is coming to an end!
Oh God let this be good! But he says to me, the latter part is always more glorious than the former (Haggai 2:9)!
Braced up, I walk into the other side of the bridge, nerves calm and of course, character built! I look forward to life after the bridge!
This journey on the bridge has worked something in me! Character has been formed, trust has been built, my “on the bridge experience..”
Oh! Would I ever ask for one like this? Well, having gone through it, with God all the way, I would say a thousand times Yes! For I have gained many things, one of which is knowing my God more intimately.
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us”
Romans 8:18 KJV
“And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope”.
Romans 5:3-4 NKJV
