A Foretaste Of The Life To Come

In a garden of flowers he did repose A place of solace where he often meditate His glorious presence he often did dedicate He sank to his knees in worship and adoration He lays there, lost in His Awesomely Inspiring Presence As spiritual songs marched up the throne of the Omnipresence He stood in awe, as he watched cautiously A green serpent gazed at him with its eyes Slowly creeping on the branches, not far-off it spies He was scared! This is strange! What a shock! While his lip sings, the serpent appears As soon as he ceases, unto the trees the creature disappears Oftentimes it’ll draw close and stare at him He thought of striking the creature to death And a voice said, “Catch your breath” This creature that wears a green dress Being subject to decay and pain Also looks forward with hope to reign It is obvious and abundantly clear Not only this creature, but the whole of creation For creation groans being subjected to corruption And fear, enslavement and physical frailty Will be redeemed at the consummation of our glory The Holy Spirit is granted as a foretaste of that eternal story For the earnest expectation of the creation waiteth for the revealing of the sons of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. [Romans 8:19,22]
