“I am Building the Bridge for him…”

“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.

“Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim near,
“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.

If you have any questions, feel free to message me, or you can look on mormon.org if you would like to know more about who is Jesus Christ at mormon.org.

  1. Dear Elder Rivas,

    I am so much grateful for your testimony, your courage and your willingness to serve in building the Kingdom of our God. Your example on living the Gospel of Jesus Christ inspires me to try a little harder everyday to be a little better daughter of God and to serve Him as you do.
    With love and deep appreciation for you and for all you do to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  2. Dear Sister Cruz, you are very kind and have been kind to me since before I was born. In fact, you have built and have been building hundreds more bridges as you help the stake because you magnify your calling! My mother loves you for your enduring courage to be kind and for praising God Our Father and loving the Savior. I do too! Walk tall, you’re a daughter of God! Be strong and remember who you are. Understand that you’re part of His great plan. He’s closer than you know, reach up! He’ll take your hand. – Elder Rivas
