Day 118

//

God, 

I long to know

If this has potential—

It is not a desperate,

But a gentle calm

As I wait. You are 

Holding us in Your hand

& You brought us together

This time, right now, for reasons

I can’t seem to understand—

I walk by faith, not by sight 

You say. When all I can see

Is distance and constant,

Persistent talking, prayer, 

You must see more, like

Our hearts. I don’t know 

You are weaving this,

But it is beautiful &

Scary. I want to see Your

Hand in every little thing

& praise You all the more.

  1. First of all, so fun to see poetry on Five Minute Friday! Loved the final lines: “Scary. I want to see Your / Hand in every little thing / & praise You all the more.” It brought to mind one of my favorite quotes from Abraham Kuyper: “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!” Beautiful reminder.

    • Thank you, Kandi! I’ve never heard that quote or Abraham Kuyper, but I love it. Thank you for sharing it with me. ☺️ part of those final lines were inspired by Francesca Battistelli’s Giants Fall.
      “Ask and believe.
      You’re gonna see the hand of God
      in every little thing.”
