Scripture encouragement: Psalm 40:1-2
(sequel to “Butterfly Wings”)
I wanted to try my fluttering wings,
fly freely with joy and peace!
Yet I couldn’t seem to loose myself
from a confusing pull toward grief.
Why is this so, was His teaching wasted?
I wondered with dismay.
Why have such wings if I’m still lost,
unable to find my way?
“Wait, my child!” I heard Him say,
my spirit at last aware,
“I have a purpose for your life,
and I will lead you there.”
“Bidding good-bye to former ways
is difficult to do.
You cannot do this on your own,
but I AM here for you.”
“First we’ll seek out higher ground,
so you can begin to see,
the things I have prepared for you,
as you surrender in trust to Me.”
