I’ve started a couple of poems since last May, but was unable to finish them. I wrote this one this evening, after thinking all day about Ezek 37 (the dry bones) and Psalms 18:28, “For it is you who light my lamp; the LORD my God lightens my darkness.” This is how I’ve been feeling-dead in the dark-and I’m just trusting God that one day I will more fully see His light in this darkness and be able to breathe deeply and say, “Ahh, I’m finally alive again!”
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. –Lao Tzu
This is the outward evidence of my inward action. It feels like a thousand miles have brought me to this first step. Jesus, thank you for new mercies every morning, fresh starts, and helping me forget the past and run toward the future (Phil 3:13-14)!
