On February 6th 2014 I posted a poem entitled "Sometimes...I Wish". In it I revealed my desire, at times, to be a fly.
In response to a comment I received, which stated I should want to be invisible - rather than a fly, I felt I should explain my reason for wanting to be an fly.

???=my poems on amazon. com - ebook

 

WHY ARE THERE TIMES WHEN I 'WISH' TO BE A FLY RATHER THAN 'WISH' TO BE INVISIBLE? WELL…LET ME EXPLAIN WHY.

 FIRST OF ALL, NO ONE IS INVISIBLE ON THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN AND I'M NOT READY TO BE IN THAT STATE UNTIL GOD SAYS SO. AND, SECONDLY, LIKE JOB(JOB 25:6), I CHOOSE TO LIKEN MYSELF AFTER ONE 'WITHOUT' THE ABILITY TO REASON OR THINK. FOR,  SOMETIMES, IF WE ARE HONEST AND CAN ADMIT IT, IT IS THESE CAPABILITIES THAT 'GET IN THE WAY' OF OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

WHY DO I SAY THIS? BECAUSE, YOU SEE, WE DON'T NEED INTELLIGENCE TO PRAISE OUR GOD. ALL LIVING THINGS SHOULD PRAISE GOD(IS 55:12, PS 98;8, PS 150;6) FOR GOD GAVE THE ABILITY FOR EVERY LIVING THING TO 'COMMUNICATE' WITH HIM IN THEIR OWN WAY("...PRAISE HIM 'ALL' CREATURES HERE BELOW..."-REV 5:13). AND, I DEAR SAY, IN SPITE OF OUR INTELLECT, NATURE DOES THIS MUCH BETTER AND MORE OFTEN THAN MOST HUMANS DO. AFTER ALL, STARS, MOON, WATERS, WILD BEASTS PRAISE HIM, WHY EVEN THE 'TREES' CLAP THEIR HANDS IN ADORATION OF THE ALMIGHTY. 

THUS, WHEN THE INSPIRATION, 'SOMETIMES...I WISH', CAME TO ME, I WAS THINKING ABOUT A MOMENT WHEN I, IN  A MIND-SET OF TOTAL INSIGNIFICANCE, COULD DO NOTHING BUT PRAISE MY GOD. FOR, '... ONLY WHEN ONE CAN RECOGNIZE THEIR INSIGNIFICANCE BEFORE GOD-CAN ONE TRULY EMBRACE THEIR SIGNIFICANCE TO GOD...'(see; IS 55:9-10,  and 'MY SIGNIFICANCE' here on AD). AS A VESSEL OF 'HIS INSPIRATIONS' I, AS I STATED IN MY BIOGRAPHY, DON'T PULL ANY PUNCHES. I AM NOT ASHAMED. I DON'T PRETEND I'M UP, WHEN I'M DOWN. I AM HONEST AND I TELL IT LIKE IT IS.

THERE IS NO HESITANCY IN ME AS I SHARE  WITH YOU THE FACT THAT,  AT THIS  TIME IN MY LIFE, I'M AM GOING THROUGH A VERY ROUGH STAGE...EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY. THE 'FIGHT' IS FIERCE AND I'M BLEEDING AND RAW. I COULD EASILY FORGET THAT THE BATTLE IS NOT MINE...BUT GOD'S!  MY INTELLECT, SOMETIMES, HAMPERS ME FROM TOTALLY DEPENDING UPON GOD AND, I DON'T MIND SAYING, IT SOMETIMES, OBSCURES THE PATHWAY OF HIS PERFECT WILL FOR ME. BUT JESUS, WHO KNOWS ME(??? 'YOU KNOW ME')WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO GIVE UP! THUS, I FOLLOW HIM!  EVEN THOUGH I MAY DROP BEHIND A LITTLE, I CONTINUE TO FOLLOW HIM...AND I WILL FOLLOW...ALL THE WAY TO BEULAH LAND. I TRUST HIM(??? 'I TRUST YOU, LORD)AND I KNOW, IN HIS OWN GOOD TIME, HE WILL BRING ME TO WHERE HE WANTS ME TO BE...IN HIM.

SO...NO, I DON'T WANT TO BE INVISIBLE BECAUSE,  INVISABILITY WON'T TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM ME BUT THE ABILITY OF OTHERS TO SEE ME. HOWEVER, I'LL STILL BE ABLE TO THINK AND HAVE MY OWN WAY AND LET 'THINGS' THAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY AND DO BOTHER ME. HERE THEN IS THE REASON WHY THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I WISH TO BE IN A SMALLER FORM. A MORE INSIGNIFICANT FORM WITH THE ABILITY TO DO 'NOTHING', HOUR AFTER HOUR, BUT GIVE JESUS ALL THE PRAISE AND WORSHIP HE SO RICHLY DESERVES! 

NOW, PLEASE DON'T MISUNDERSTAND. I DO WANT GOD'S WILL TO BE DONE IN MY LIFE. FOR I KNOW I CANNOT INSPIRE ANYONE IF I HAVEN'T BEEN THROUGH ANYTHING. I REALIZE THAT I AM A MEMBER OF A UNIQUE GROUP OF  VESSELS (see;  'GOD'S POETS' here on AD)WHICH ARE BEING USED BY GOD FOR THIS DAY AND TIME. AND IT IS BECAUSE OF THIS REALIZATION THAT I KNOW I MUST TELL THE GOOD AND THE BAD. I MUST TELL HOW IT IS ON THE MOUNTAIN 'AND' HOW IT IS IN THE VALLEY. I MUST LET OTHERS KNOW THAT IT IS NOT 'EASY', AT ALL, GOING THROUGH LIFE.  AND SOMETIMES I DO WISH I DIDN'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH  A LOT OF THE EXPERIENCES THAT I FACE. YES, SOMETIMES I WISH I WAS SOMETHING ELSE! BUT, AT THE SAME TIME, I MUST ENCOURAGE OTHERS BY LETTING THEM KNOW THAT NO MATTER HOW WE MIGHT FEEL OR HOW DIM OUR PATH BECOMES...WE PRESS ON! SOMETIMES WE COME TO A  POINT WHERE WE CAN HARDLY SEE 'HIM'! STILL, WE MUST NEVER LOSE OUR FAITH IN OUR REDEEMER WHO IS EVER PRESENT,  EVER LOVES US AND IS ALWAYS IN CHARGE(see; 'MY CAPTAIN' here on AD). GOD NEVER PROMISED US A 'ROSE GARDEN'(JOHN 16:33) BUT  HE DID PROMISE THAT HE WOULD ALWAYS, ALWAYS BE WITH US(MATT 28:20).

SO NOW YOU KNOW WHY THE INSPIRATION; 'SOMETIMES ...I WISH' WAS WRITTEN. POEPLE MUST KNOW THAT THOUGH THE LOAD WILL GROW HEAVY..., AND THOUGH WE MIGHT FALL... AND  THOUGH SOMETIMES WE'LL FEEL LIKE THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN MAKE IT..., WE MUST ALWAYS HOLD ON TO JESUS!!! WE ARE NOT ALWAYS LEADERS, SOMETIMES WE'RE STRAGGLERS, BUT THROUGH THE STRENGTH OF ALMIGHTY GOD WE STILL CLING TO WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS TRUE AND AND WHAT IS GOOD(PHIL 4:8)... AND THIS IS NOTHING BUT...THE CROSS!!!!  

NOW, I'M AWARE THAT MANY OF YOU MIGHT NOT AGREE WITH ME, BUT AM I PERFECT AND WITHOUT FAULTS? NO, I'M FAR FROM IT. BUT THEN, CALVARY WAS NOT FOR THE PERFECT, BUT FOR THE LIKES OF ME...AND IT WAS NOT IN VAIN.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS...OUR 'ABILITIES' OFTEN PREVENT US FROM BEING 'STILL' AND WAITING ON GOD. WHEN WE SHOULD BE PRAISING HIM,  GLORIFYING HIM AND WAITING ON HIM...WE'RE BUSY GETTING IN HIS WAY. THIS IS BECAUSE OUR INTELLECT TELLS US THAT GOD CAN'T WIN OUR BATTLES ALONE. WE WANT THE CREDIT FOR OUR SURVIVAL...OUR VICTORIES. OUR EGOS LEAD US TO BELIEVE THAT GOD NEEDS OUR HELP, EVEN THOUGH THE WORD OF GOD SAYS JUST THE OPPOSITE(1 SAM 17:47, JUDG 7:2, ZACH 4:6).  IMAGINE THE ABILITY TO JUST  STEP AWAY...TO FLY AWAY, SIT ON A WALL...AND WAIT AND WATCH... AS THE POWER OF GOD RESPONDS TO OUR  LOVE, OUR PRAISE, OUR PRAYERS, OUR FAITH, OUR TRUST...IN HIM ALONE.

HAVE YOU EVER OBSERVED HOW 'STILL' A FLY SOMETIMES BECOMES? YEAH...SOMETIMES, I WISH...I WAS A FLY. 

 

PS 46:10
