I wrote this poem several years ago after realizing I was going to make it after all. In Christ, we can overcome the most destitute of circumstances.
Shiny people rise above
Walking through darkness
Yet cloaked in love,
Calling to Jesus as the senses fray,
Nothing but darkness, knee-deep in the day.
Step forward, step backward.
Sow tiny seeds.
Trust His great Spirit
to meet the great need.
An unlikely garden
yields the smallest of sprouts,
Love opens the ground
And a way is made out.
For the greatest adventure in all of our time
Is the journey to freedom
It's yours and it's mine.
