“If you know wilderness in the way that you know love, you would be unwilling to let it go…. This is the story of our past and it will be the story of our future.”
Terry Tempest Williams
Lord, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I cannot handle together.
Depression and sadness, financial stress:
Contributing factors to my wilderness.
The breakdown of marriage, the family drama:
These issues all puncture my soul’s weakening armour
And yet as I struggle through my darkest hour,
There’s hope that erupts from a spiritual power.
I see it in smiles of my family around me;
It banishes demons that otherwise hound me.
At St Vedast, St Botolph, I find inner peace –
With more positive thoughts, my joy can increase.
I often sit quietly, give thanks and praise
For those who support me in so many ways.
I know that my wife and my children all love me,
I know that I’m loved by the big guy above me.
That love, those smiles: I know form the basis
For God to turn wilderness into oasis.
