Rejoicing In The Middle

“He turned the sea into dry land;
They went through the river on foot.
There we will rejoice in Him.”  Psalms 66:6

How many of us are in the middle of the river, on foot, right now?

Oh Lord, we desire to rejoice in You right now, before we even know what the outcome will be.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We’re There

How did it feel there
between the walls of water
walking on the sea’s bottom
following the way He’d made?

Let us rejoice now
in the middle of the miracle
that happens each time
we trust Him and obey.


  1. Deb, you’ve done it again. 😀 You’ve put a song on my heart!

    Thank you for always putting a song in my heart!


  2. i cringe when I think of being in the middle of anything. Hot or cold. But this is a good example of a “good middle.” i want to be in the middle if He is with me.

  3. thank you Deb..I felt I’ve been in the middle of many things before and even now..thanks for your encouraging poem!Have you heard of the song “somewhere in the Middle” by Casting crowns?

  4. Great perspective Deb! How often do we think we will rejoice once we reach the other side. I join you now in praising Him right where we are and in the middle of wherever He has us! Blessings and rejoicing!

  5. so nice Deb!

  6. AMEN! what a blessing to realize He is at work in our lives and even though the future is uncertain, we know He is with us! Lord bless. Thanks for the great thought.

  7. Excellent. Loved this.

  8. I like what you’ve done with those walls of water, Debbie! The next time I am in the midst of a daunting trust & obey situation – I will picture these words of yours as I walk “in the middle of the miracle”.

    Blessings ~ Wendy xo

  9. God bless you!

  10. A rare thing, I know, but I’m speechless, Sis Deb–this is so beautiful, so full of HIM. Thank you for the simple and grace-filled message–God bless you abundantly, this Worshipful Wednesday. love, sis Caddo

  11. Debbie! So wonderful! “In the middle of a miracle…” You always see the light. *Thank you.*

  12. “…How did it feel there
    between the walls of water
    walking on the sea’s bottom
    following the way He’d made?…”

    I’d guess that the children all ran over to the walls, stuck their hands in the water, and then yelled, “Mama, mama, look at this.”

    The kids’ mothers, being Jewish and all, probably yelled, “Oy vey! Don’t you love me? Do you want to give me a heart attack? Get over here by me, right now!”

    What a great question? Now you have me wondering. Great article today.

  13. Prophetic thank you’s are the way to go if you want a glorious outcome. Great post, Deb!
    God Bless You!

  14. It doesn’t matter one iota what is ahead. It may be painful. It may be distressing. It may be the worst that has ever happened in life . . . but one thing is certain. My God is there with me and He is in control. He has hold of me and He will undertake for me. He will bring me through whatever happens and I will be spiritually stronger for the experience.

    What an incredibly amazing God!

  15. Thank you for always bringing that song here for us! God bless you, Cheryl! love and prayers!

  16. Oh . ..I didn’t think about the lukewarm middle. That makes me cringe too! God bless you and walk with you all the way!

  17. I’m so glad you are praising Him now, Tom! 🙂 God bless you as He brings you through, rejoicing!

  18. God bless you, Terry. Praying for you and Al today!

  19. God bless you, Pastor Rob, and helping us to always know He is with us!

  20. Thank you, poet friend and God bless you! Praying for Sarah today.

  21. Thank you for being able to picture that too, Wendy! 🙂 I always thought it must have been so incredible and wonderful . ..but then thought more about it and how it might have been kind of frightening! God bless you at the start , middle and end!

  22. God bless you too, Emerald! Keep walking and writing! 🙂

  23. Love you Sis Caddo, speechless or talkative! God bless you and the miracles you are in the middle of right now!

  24. Sometimes it takes me awhile . .but I just keep looking and waiting for Him to turn on the switch. 🙂 God bless you and give you light along the way , Brook!

  25. I love your description, Mr. Larry! 🙂 It’s that writer coming out in you! God bless you as you wonder and see!

  26. Amen, Lady Dei! I love that “prophetic thank you’s”. Thank you! And God bless you and the outcome yet to come!

  27. Thank you and God bless you, mentor Angela, for walking in faith and showing us the way to Him, always! love and prayers!
