BEHIND THE SCENES

It’s always behind the scenes

Where our strength is renewed;

On wings like eagles to be mounted

With a new perspective and a view.

It’s where everything it happens

Deep in the chamber of our heart;

It’s where seeds are planted and nourished

To foster a new start.

It’s behind the scenes

Where God works in our heart and soul,

In truly miraculous ways;

In mysterious ways to uphold.

It’s behind the precious scenes

Where a baby is knitted together;

Safely nestled in the mother’s womb

With a blueprint that lasts forever.

It’s behind the scenes

Where hearts are knitted together;

To make a holy commitment

That will bind two hearts forever.

It’s beneath the scenes that seeds are planted

Where a forest will be grown…

A harvest indeed where birds can nest

And with every fruit we’ve known.

Behind the scenes there’s power

As the caterpillar becomes a butterfly;

It’s where the old it fades and all is renewed

Where new beginnings will abide.

It’s behind the scenes in a manger

Where our Savior was gently placed,

And visited by the three wise men

With gifts and blessings interlaced.

Behind the scenes in the wilderness

By evil our Jesus was tempted,

But the Lord stood firm and quoted scripture

When several times the devil attempted.

It’s behind the scenes

In the realm invisible,

Where His love is deposited

Where we can remain calm and still.

It’s behind that curtain

Where the sweat and tears remain;

It’s where God prepares us

So we’re never truly the same.

It’s the struggles, the pain and frustration

All behind the scenes…

It’s when doubt, fear and anxiety

Will try to rob our treasured dreams.

God works behind the scenes

When we’re used as mere vessels,

And moved when prompted in obedience

When our faith is safely nestled.

The stage is being set

And the curtain is to fade;

The spotlight is on His children

But will He find faith that remains?

The preparation room

Is always behind the scenes;

Where the battle is enraged

And where the fire makes all pristine.

Embrace our time behind the scenes

It is precious and valuable,

As it chisels our character in numerous ways

So our heart and soul become full.

Behind the scenes also lies corruption

By those who practice a lie,

But God Almighty in His control

Will bring to light all that’s disguised.

Behind the scenes God knocks on our heart

So we can dine with Him,

As we feast on all His promises

Where reconciliation this will bring.
