All Set

“I called on the LORD in distress;
The LORD answered me and set me
in a broad place.”  Psalm 118:5

Circumstances can close in on us.

Lord, please help me to remember I am always in a broad generous place because of You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Eyes Wide Open

Feeling hemmed in
by my situation
distressed enough
so I just can’t see
until You open my eyes
to the wide place
You have
set me.


“When the men of Israel saw that they were in danger, (for the people were distressed), then the people hid in caves, in thickets, in rocks, in holes and in pits.” 1 Samuel 13:6

Twenty-five years ago, I was in deep distress.

Thank You, Lord, for being our hiding place and knowing when we are in danger and distress. And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Very Real Danger

We can hide in pits of anger
in the thick of food

in sleepless holes
and caves of substance abuse

but it won’t take away
the very real danger of

living on the outside
and refusing Your love.
