Flight Instructor

The One who gave me wings

Doesn’t force me to fly.

Sometimes

I soar.

Sometimes

I walk.

And sometimes…

I crash.

And yet,

My Instructor is always nearby.

Reminding me of my wings.

Walking beside me when I’m tired

Or forgetful.

When needed,

He comforts me and tends my wounds,

Never leaving me alone in the dirt.

He also sends me

Others.

They too have wings

And are prone to the same frailties.

But at any given moment,

They become my inspiration.

Some

I’ll remember for a lifetime.

Memories of others

May fade.

But together,

The lessons they teach

Will forever be part

Of the new heights I reach.

With thanks to all those who have reminded me of my wings–and my responsibility to help others soar.

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear (Ephesians 4:29, ESV).
