meditation on Deuteronomy 3:22, “Do not fear them, for the Lord your God is the one fighting for you” (NASB)



wrapped in a blanket

cold jeans, muddy keds

i prayed

do not fear

waiting for the sun

calm water, dark trees

i prayed

for the Lord

waving the night away

pink sky, steaming lake

i prayed

is the One

walking to the edge

pounding heart, frail hope

i prayed

fighting for you

when the clouds parted

gold light, warm embrace

i prayed



meditation on Psalm 34:4, “I sought the Lord, and He answered me / And delivered me from all my fears”



i sought the Lord

on replay

day and night

i did not hear when

He answered me

in pieces

big and small

freely poured into me

and delivered me

with grace

lavish and endless

i did nothing yet He lifted me

from all my fears



meditation on Exodus 33:14, “And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest,” and John 1:4, “Jesus answered and said to him, “Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these”



in

My presence will

hold

go

out

with you and

in

Me you will find

hold

ease

out

see I will

in

show you greater

hold

things

out

than this and

in

Me you will

hold

find

Rest
