Flyers face downdrafts,
Things that send them plummeting from the skies.
They were all minor.
That makes it worse.
How can I succumb
To such minor challenges?
A slow computer
When I could simply use my husband’s.
A mild virus
When so many suffer from
Debilitating diseases and chronic conditions.
Lack of motivation
When family and clients alike are not pressuring me.
A cold house
When so many have no shelter from the elements.
Expressions of concern
When vast numbers have no-one who cares for them.
When I have the wherewithal to accomplish
What needs to be done.
Reminders that anything good in me
Is not because of some innate value
But divine grace.
I must cling to that truth
And once again
Take to the skies.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come…(2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV),
