I clipped my wings so I could fly;
Soar higher than before.
My focus has moved to my wing’s length-
I’m stuck here on the floor.
My gaze weighs so heavy
That it pulls unwanted thoughts in…
Moving me deeper in this cage;
My head’s beginning to swim!
I was meant to fly ; even past
Intimidating Mountains that block the Sun.
So watch me now as I take the plunge;
Allowing my feathers to be undone-
For it’s not by my strength the wind carries me great distances through the sky;
Jesus remind me that You’re holding me
As You teach me how to fly.
“The judgement seat of Christ, which will be studied in detail later, is not a judgement of where the believer will spend eternity, but rather a judgement of the works done on earth. Rewards there will be given according to the deeds in this life. ‘If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness .’ (first John 1:9 ) Christ judges and forgives a person at salvation . The actual judgement takes place at the moment of salvation. Of coarse, salvation can be lost through carelessness or rebellion. But at death, or at the Rapture, one’s eternal destiny is permanently settled.” ~ eschatology: a study of things to come (i’m studying if in case you couldn’t tell ☺️)
When I read this I wondered about The judgement of the works done on earth because when we accept Christ as our Savior, our name is written in the Book Of Life. But the Holy Spirit showed me the judgement of the works of what we’ve done on earth will be like placement in a symphony. Everyone wants first chair, but an orchestra won’t be complete if everyone is first chair. 💞
In 100 words or less how do you think the story will go if Adam and Eve were victorious in their first temptation ? I’ll explain more in another post😀
I’ll go first. This is how mine would look:
With smells and sights unknown to us, Adam and Eve strolled through the bountiful vibrant garden; their hands interlocked with each other’s. Their pulses were strong as their lungs pumped air freely throughout their bodies.
Waiting for them to pass by, the serpent chose the highest place in the Tree of Knowledge, for he despised crawling on his belly! This cold creature watched Adam and Eve enjoy luscious fruits and brightly coloured vegetables. He thought about how the other animals had knocked dirt in his face. So when eve was an earshot away he asked her, “has God indeed said, “you shall not eat of every tree in the garden?”
Smiling as she stood in the cool of the day, she replied, “you know, it’s best you ask God Himself, since he did make the rules.” Eve then walked away.
