The sun invigorates all God’s magnificent creation

I sit under majestic trees, the cool breeze brushing my cheeks
Birds sing as if they were performing for a king
Which they are
Sweet and tangy fragrances smother me with gentle kisses
A child plays nearby
Her laughter like the sun-lit ripples of the nearby gurgling creek

God is here
I know it
With every fibre of my being

---------

This desperately wicked world is damned

An empty planet, populated only by greed and malice
No sounds save the screams of anger and hatred
I’m alone
Not by choice but abandoned
My chest burns hot with the effort of drawing breath
Yet the chill of death tunnels into every atom of my bones

God is here
I cling to that truth
With every fibre of my being

-----------

“Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
… Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Saviour…..

I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
In the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD;
Be strong and take heart
And wait for the LORD.”*


-------

Be strong, my soul
Take heart
And wait
Wait for the LORD

I will wait

Because God is here




* Psalm 27:9, 13-14 NIV

Uplifting devotional.

Excellent choice of words and scripture in relating your message of hope.

Great images in the first stanza, and then the contrast of the second stanza--very powerful! Maybe poetry is going to be your "thing" after all!
