Eagles and Butterflies

by Gordon Greene

She wanted to be an eagle but was born a butterfly
Often in prayer she would ask GOD why

But GOD never answered why she was what she was
GOD seldom explains why He does what He does

Unable to cope with life's pressures and strife
Butterfly questioned the value of her Christian life

Tears stream down her face as she watches eagles soar
Bitterly disappointed that she herself could not do more

She flutters from flower to flower drinking in their nectar
Quietly pollinating as they are felt and touched by her

But in her tortured mind she thinks that she only takes
Never seeing what a difference to others her life makes

Eagles are strong and powerful this is very true
But eagles cannot minister in the way that you do
