What Waits Within the Wings...

I promise I did not write this just so I could post another butterfly photo😉

What waits within the wings where Time unfolds its day to day
Is anybody’s guess but One to whom we all should pray
Then as we entrust The Unknown to His kindness and care
It lifts the weight that makes us groan with worry’s dark despair

What waits within the wings is never grace-of-God deprived
When pulses quicken with ‘what-if’ He whispers soft inside
Where He who calmed the violent wind and waves with ‘peace, be still’
Is He who silences fear’s storms if faith yields to His will

Aha, aha, naysayers scoff as trouble rends the prow
And all they see is Misery of little Here and Now
Blind, until belief melts the scales that knowledge cannot rend
As Word that never fails bestows what no one can pretend

What waits within the wings are steppingstones that skim time’s sod
Where feet carry the soul of man back to the arms of God
And then, oh, sacred then, when we with that last exhale see
His face, what waits within the wings will be Eternity

2 Cor.2: 6-16
 Among the mature, however, we speak a message of wisdom—but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we speak of the mysterious and hidden wisdom of God, which He destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it. For if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. Rather, as it is written:

“No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no heart has imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love Him.”
But God has revealed it to us by the Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of man except his own spirit within him? So too, no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. And this is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.
The natural man does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God. For they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is not subject to anyone’s judgment. “For who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
