Fishing for Answers   Leave a comment

I saw a man pull a fish from the water today

Watching it dangle from the hook, gills gasping for air

My heart grasping for answers

 

The fishermen and fisher-boys grinned with delight

And I wondered if that would be their dinner tonight

Or will its life be lost in vain to entertain

 

But then I realized what was really the matter

This is how my own life is sustained

Something always gives up its life for me to live

Echoing the truth of what my Savior did

 

I prayed for the fish and held fast to faith

That all creation for eternity lives

What I see with mortal eyes is just an illusion

Unable to perceive the soul in transition
