For A Moment

by Iyanth Beason Ponder
(Miami. Florida)

i stood - for a moment

to behold the view
that lay before me
this new land.
this unknown territory.

my heart - for a moment
was filled with despair
as i turned to ask,
"why Lord, here?"

you see, the land was barren
the winds rolled the dust
and yet His reply simply was,
"it's because I love you
go through this and trust
that I will never ask you to take one step beyond
where you will ever be without a Companion..."

i stood there quietly
gazing at my Lord
and for a moment it seemed i saw a tear fall...

and after a moment.

for just a moment...

with a firm resolve that His Will be done
i softly said to my Companion...
"ABBA, lead on."
