The world speeds on
Leaves anyone and everyone behind
A race against time, already lost,
Yet, anxiety drives ahead
Manic worry pushes harder and harder,
No let up in natural forces
No let up in the dark supernatural forces that lie and steal
That move to always destroy
Wear out the good
Wear down and ruin the lives generously given.
Such an impossible dilemma for all mankind
Snare of ambition and envy, trap of fear and pride
What the mind can conceive and imagine
What the hands can shape and make
Earthly survival, fantasy of a tidal wave that chases the weak and foolish.
And still, from day to day the earth basically rotates the same
Always spins the same
Tilts towards the sun in season
Tilts away from the sun in season,
Twenty-four hour cycles for sunlight
Dark to light and back again,
The rhythm of our part of the Universe,
Galaxy, solar system, earth and individual body
Rhythms set in order.
Men long for inner peace but do not find it
Women long for true security but never quite take hold
Needs flood over and around;
Finally a soul cries out towards Heaven
And is heard,
Tears to believe, a heart to receive reaches in faith
Then another and another, two or three gathered together.
For them, to them, time stops,
Eternity is embraced
Eternity clothes the soul and spirit
And the new mind of Christ within begins to understand
Eternity has joined as one in the revelation of Sabbath rest
Mysteries of life begin to be made known
As true peace sprouts wings
And Heaven’s security wraps arms of loving warmth about the heart.
