Who we are in Christ is all that really matters, once we are stripped of all the roles of our life.


Moments by Patsy Lewis

For a moment, I was a child and the boundaries of my world were clearly defined. I was sheltered and confined within the safety and restrictions of the authority of others. I had not much choice as to my actions. To obey meant approval, to disobey brought discipline.

As my mind developed and was influenced more and more by peers, I felt independence rising within my mind and spirit. A longing to break free of restraints imposed by the authority figures of my world seemed the route to fulfillment.

For a short moment, I was the center of someone’s world. The object of affection and the source of the fulfillment of his dream. I felt joy and expectation at the future moments of life.

For a few shining moments, I held my child within my own body. I nourished and protected her and I was fulfilled by the thrill of bringing to life another human being who belonged to me. I brought her forth in unexplainable beauty and perfection, marveling at my ability to become a mother. I created walls around her and confined her within the safety of my knowledge of right, directing her steps, guiding her thoughts.

And then, in a moment, she was gone and my arms were empty and my heart searched for something lasting to fill the aching of my spirit.

In an agonizing moment, I found myself no longer the object of his love, for he was lured away, searching for his own solution to fulfillment.

Cast adrift in a shattered moment, a painful world of endless moments of sorrow and regret, I grasped for meaning and substance for the remaining moments allotted to me by that never changing constant of my world.

With desperation I saw the culmination of all the moments of my life as meaningless, in vain, without sustenance for the inner hungering of my soul. For in the space of a moment, my spirit faced the truth of its need and surrendered itself to His purpose.

The unexplainable ecstasy of complete and unconditional love brought the moments of a lifetime into perspective. Each joyful moment flowed into another as I lived within the protecting walls of the authority of my life.

And in one shining moment, only a short space of a lifetime, I became attuned and sensitive, motivated and inspired as an instrument in the hands of God. The overwhelming cry for fulfillment was answered as my desires merged into His perfection and we became one in purpose.

And in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, I shall be changed. My mortality shall put on immortality and my corruption shall become incorruptible. All the other moments of my life will be as a vapor, a mist that disappears in the joy of that moment.
