We seem to fret and worry which also brings a frown.
We forget about the journey that we all are on each day.
We never seem to take the time to get on our knees to pray.
We always want to be there; that next stage of our life.
If we are just single we think we need a wife.
If we have some children we hope they grow up soon.
And when the sun is beating down we then long for the moon.
You see we’re never satisfied to be just where we’re at.
When playing in the outfield we want to be up to bat.
If patience is a virtue then virtuous we’re not.
We forget about the journey; we can’t connect the dot.
If we slow our minds to think about going to and fro.
And ponder hard about the thought of who is in the know.
Then search the Word and ask for help from someone up above.
Then we can live the journey and be grounded in God’s love.
For Christ is our example when He came to earth to die.
He bridged the gap from here to there and His methods were not shy.
He healed the sick and crippled and gave the blind their sight.
But kept His focus on the future and the up and coming night.
For He was clear about His mission and the world with such great need.
He knew He was their only hope and was willing then to bleed.
He laid His life down willingly even though He had no sin.
He was clear about His purpose and the souls for which to win.
Now if we think of bridges and what they do for us.
Without them we are stranded so of this let’s discuss.
They span the greatest rivers and mountain passes way up high.
They help us get from here to there if on God we will rely.
Do you need a bridge today, to get your life in gear?
To show you that there is still hope when people live in fear.
Just let me introduce you to the one I know will care.
The only one that can help you get “From Here To There”.
