Hi, there, dear friends! On this Palm Sunday, I felt the urge to carve out at least a little time on here for one of my dearest loves-poetry.
I admit I haven’t been able to tinker around with it near as much as I’d like lately. But, it’s okay. It’s necessary. And life on the homeschool front does have its joys! Really does!
Yet, the fact is, life looks so…different right now. So simple yet somehow more complex-on a whole different plane.
We are all well in my household, praise God. Still, there is much upheaval, much uncertainty-that which I know most all of us are facing in one way or another.
But, now more than ever, my heart must declare- this truth remains. Jesus is still Jesus…
Walls rise between.
Isolation becomes the theme.
At a time when we most crave the comfort
Of another human soul,
Sickness steals the effort;
Hands must still, relinquish all the control…
That which lurks unrestfully in the morning breeze…
So easy it would be
To simply sink into this haunting anxiety,
Or numb ourselves to hopeless apathy.
As the news scrolls
The seemingly unending tolls
Where lies our heartsong?
Is it lost in the desperate, teeming throngs?
Where is that which in our utter weakness
Can make us ever strong?
Oh, not in ourselves by any means,
Despite the empty promises to which we cling…
No…those sort of actions are none but a smoke screen…
Here’s the real thing.
Jesus is for once, for only, and still The King of Kings!
Not a wall can hold the truth
Of hosannas loudly echoing-
“Save us now! ” we cry.
And when we believe that He can,
This humble, this righteous King-
That He has
For all time,
That is where we will find comfort
That can ever withstand.
And strength where distance exists not
As He holds us each in His capable hand….
Know that today and always, dear friends! Blessings and prayers to you! Appreciate the read! 🙂❤
