I always will.
years ago, God used a godly lady to share a simple poem with my family.
This poem helped me see the BIGGER picture of life and opened my
spiritual eyes to needs. I would like to share it.
‘Let me walk in the field;’
God said: ‘Nay, walk in the town;’
I said: ‘There are no flowers there;’
He said: ‘No flowers, but a crown.'”
‘But the sky is black,
There is nothing but noise and din;’
But He wept as He sent me back,
‘There is more,’ He said, ‘there is sin.'”
‘But the air is thick,
and fogs are veiling the sun;’
He answered: ‘Yet souls are sick,
And souls in the dark undone.'”
‘I shall miss the light,
and friends will miss me they say;’
He answered me, ‘Choose tonight,
If I am to miss you, or they.'”
for time to be given;
He said: ‘Is it hard to decide?
It will not seem hard in Heaven,
To have followed the steps of your Guide.'”
one look at the fields,
Then set my face to the town;
He said: ‘My child, do you yield?
Will you leave the flowers for the crown?'”
His hand went mine,
And into my heart came He;
And I walk in a light Divine,
The path I had feared to see.”
God brought this poem across my path once
again, and I just laughed inside at how He uses little things like this
to help and strengthen my weak faith, to follow Him and grab a hold of
HIS promises, purposes and passions.
It requires a surrender, but the
exchange is unparallelled…and so worth it!
