A Moment Away
Rewarding us in secret, our Father gives us back,
what the enemy took through attack.
The heat and rain took it away.
Weight of oppression made our backs sway.
Pests ate away what didn’t rot.
Relief we vainly sought.
But suffering is sometimes a disguise,
for we will be eternally in paradise.
No rain will be there, or wind or snow,
but perfectly the fruit will grow.
So there is no need to sorrow over today,
for eternity is but a moment away.
Inspired by 2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
