Choosing the Whether (for whatever waits to be)

 

Stunning start to what waits to be...


How easily and often we check the weather forecast, 
No one can choose what weather will be.
Thankfully not so with Whether;
And the Whether we choose makes all the difference in the world.
Our viewpoint is shaped by the 'whether' we choose!


Due to an unexpected week off I am on a closet-drawer-room fall-cleaning rampage!
Today, hopefully the living/dining-room.
tomorrow...um, let's wait till then to decide because plans
are always subject to change and rearrangement!




Heaven spills magenta oceans o’er emerging land and sea 
Dawn is like a door flung open to whatever waits to be 
We could hound the bounds of morrow with sorrows not suffered (yet) 
Or borrow from Present Mercy, faith to proceed step by step 

Fear is like a crouched predator too afraid to show its face 
Stalking doubt’s perimeter with harsh predictions void of grace 
Ah, we could fall prey to Dread’s bandit; fretting and forgetting He 
Who will never leave us stranded no matter what waits to be 

We are all today’s First-timers grappling with Time’s Now and Here 
Are we agile, faith-child climbers, or are we crippled by fear 
We are all in this together; tethered to the hand we’ve got 
Where God lets us choose the Whether; whether we trust Him, or not 

Happiness is not a lender favouring a Lucky Few 
It waits for all who surrender, heart and soul, to you know Who 
It is up to us to do it; take faith’s flying leap to see 
Whether God will help us through It, no matter what waits to be

"Be strong and courageous, 
do not fear or be dismayed because of the king of Assyria 
nor because of all the horde that is with him; 
for the one with us is greater than the one with him.
2 Chron.32:7
