Beyond the Gate

Growing in faith is like climbing a set of stairs…
Although the steps maybe steep,
Each step we take, allows us to become more, “faith,” aware.

No turning to the left or right,
The choices are really only two…
Take the next step up, or not!
The choice after all, depends on you?

Faith can become stagnate by dwelling at a preconceived safe plateau,
Yet, the misperceptions of a temporal mind are but a gate,
Believing only in, self-control.

Preconceived obstructions, serve only to test and strengthen our faith…
Sadly those who turn back,
Never enter in or even see the beauty that comes,
When living, “Beyond the Gate.”

This was inspired by Liesbeth’s painting “Choises”

Artist's Description

As I looked at Liesbeth’s painting “Choises” it was the contrast between the background and foreground that stood out. I saw what appears to be some obsrtuctions at the top of the steps separating the two as though it were some kind of gate, hence the title!
For me it was clearly a message of living beyond our temporal understanding through faith in God’s supernatural abilities!
