(Redemption storytelling poem)
Up and down the land she walked,
as a wanderer seeing naught and
feeling lost, she sighed and cried
“I have stalled ‘cause of the
fog and drought”.
Even within, she felt barren and dry
wanting to pray but too weak to try.
Then came a light so bright before her face,
but looking around she saw no one in that place.
Within her heart, she heard a voice say loud & clear
“I am the Light of the World who loves you, my dear”.
Then he placed a fountain in her heart and said
“Out of you shall flow rivers of living water
to quench your thirst, so you shall never falter”.
Then suddenly her heart became a well watered verdant land,
from her mouth was a melodious waterfall,
and her eyes were awash with God’s salve to never falter or fall.
The bright ray of the morning sun
hit her face so hard she covered her eyes and exclaimed “my, what a dream so real!”
The dream spoke of God’s Light,
His love and the River of Life,
a picture of what is to come,
a revelation of God’s delivering might and abundant promises day and night.
no more doubtful,
she knew that she could cope
with every trial whatever the scope,
for her heart was now full of hope,
because of Him who said
“I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass;
I have purposed it, I will also do it.(1)”
(Scriptural references:John 8:12, 7:38-39, Biblical quote Isaiah 46:11 KJV)
