Instruments Only

Sometimes

It’s very dark.

There are more

Questions than answers.

More tears than laughter.

More grief than tangible joy.

When it’s dark or stormy,

Pilots must fly

By instruments only.

And so it is

With me.

When the oppression

Is crushing,

I have but one choice.

If I want to know

The path to take.

If I want to make it

Out of the storm.

If I want to arrive safely

At my destination.

Pilots know what

All the readouts

And symbols mean.

I must study

The Word.

Learn what it says.

Apply its truth.

Or I’ll stay trapped

In the darkness.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16, NIV).
