The Plateau


The Plateau.

This mountain is steep,
A long road,
And now today,
I have reached
A plateau,
It is time to relax,
Take refreshment,
Prepare for the climb,
Perhaps look back,
Reflect,
Enjoy victories claimed,
Consider
Lessons in my memory,
Right
The occasional wrong,
Never seduced,
Victim of deceiver’s lie,
Treasuring
My tears,
The tears of joy and sorrow,
All that brings healing,
Encouragement,
New life,
For I am a bond man,
Set free in Christ’s love,
To enjoy,
Enjoy living risen life,
Then
Raised high on eagles’ wings,
Renewed anew; refreshed,
Full of hope,
The gift of God to men,
I press on
Triumphal,
Ever praising,
Towards my goal
The high calling
Which is Dad’s prize
For me,
And all who by adoption
He calls sons.
