The Bridge We Never Cross...

"How oft we trouble borrow,
And suffer mental pain,
Conjuring clouds tomorrow,
While yet no signs of rain;
Future gloom foreboding
At night on Pillows toss,
In fear of overloading
The bridge we never cross.

"From road there is no turning
That we can see just now.
Trouble ahead discerning,
To avoid we know not how:
And so we roll and tumble
At night, with sleep a loss,
And hear the distant rumble
On the bridge we never cross." —Selected.

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:25-33.
