“The Bridge Builder”
By: Will Allen Dromgoole
“An old man, going a lone highway,
Came at the evening, cold and gray,
To a chasm, vast and deep and wide,
Through which was flowing a sullen tide.
The old man crossed in the twilight dim;
The sullen stream had no fears for him;
But he turned when safe on the other side
And built a bridge to span the tide.
“You are wasting strength with building here;
Your journey will end with the ending day;
You never again must pass this way;
You have crossed the chasm, deep and wide—
Why build you the bridge at the eventide?”
The builder lifted his old gray head:
“Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said,
“There followeth after me today
A youth whose feet must pass this way.
This chasm that has been naught to me
To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be.
He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;
Good friend, I am building the bridge for him.”
Jesus Christ, was the Master Carpenter. Through His great, eternal and atoning sacrifice, the bridge that He made helps us to overcome all the unjust, bumpy hills and potholes in life. He is merciful to all, and this bridge is open to anyone, and everyone so that our burdens may be made light. [Matthew 11:28-30].
He is the Lord of lords, and our comforter. I know He lives, and His hand is one of love, and mercy. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
Have a great day!
