To The Horizon We Gaze.
Updated: Dec 16, 2020
Foreword: This piece is my take on uncertainty. Even as a Christian I worry. I shouldn't..but I do. Part of the human condition I wonder? A very well known verse in the NIV bible from 1 Peter 5 v 7 says Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. The New Living Translation says Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. I like both versions. There are of course other translations. So in the midst of a global pandemic and not knowing what is beyond my horizon, inspired my words.
To the horizon I gaze
Look at the blue above me
Breeze it gently blows
I stand amazed, just be..
Wonder what's beyond my vision
Distant, unseen, far away..
Mind a muddle, not yet clear
Revealed to me, another day?
I think, and I ponder along this path
I listen for your voice..
In sunshine my clouds are parted
Listen closely, find the sense, find the best choice..
Life you see, is a juggling act
On its stage I stand in fear..
But listen closely enough
I'll know I'll find you near...
For when I think it's all down to me
Look around is all I need to do..
See your world, see your word
Your promise will pull me through...
To the horizon I still gaze
Each step, ever nearer I travel..
Look intently with awe
Hope to glimpse your mysteries unravel...
