Arms stretched wide; a posture of surrender and vulnerability forthcoming.
Not in front to push away or self protect
Legs moving forward as in autopilot; I can barely feel the soles of my feet beating the pavement
At times, my toes nearly skim the surface of the ground beneath me
My face drips with the very water that sustains my life
Sweat and tears blur that which I run toward
but my feet know the way
I run into the embrace of the one who abandons not.
“He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge” Psalm 91:4
“The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” Deut. 33:27
“As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over
Jerusalem.” Isaiah 66:13
“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor
forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deut. 31:8
This is what I long for.
the voices of deceit; whispering of unforgivable guilt
the beasts; threatening to keep me in fear of treading the path set before me
the temptation to head down the path which promises reward for my impatience
I long to let the embrace of my Creator remain memorized in every tendon and muscle
For my God never abandons me.
