Lord, the volume of Your
Thoughts toward me is immeasurable.*
Foolishly, I sometimes think You’re
Like a giant corporation’s busy CEO
With so many meetings to chair
Money to make, deals to decide
Staff to hire, dismiss—tasks
Demanding Your stressed attention,
And that you never get a break…until
Your annual vacation, when my
Unscheduled crisis is certain to arise ~
But it’s merely a fear-based image
Painted early on this young child’s heart
Whose needs went unnoticed, neglected.
I briefly forget that You hold me
In the palm of Your strong, powerful hand;
That I’m engraved on Your heart
Where You scoop me up and hide me
Beneath Your great wings when
You see I’m in distress.
You neither slumber nor sleep,
Aware of my troubled mind—
Ever guarding, guiding me with Your eye.
Keenly attuned to all that concerns my life
You go ahead of me when day awakes,
To make my way straight, secure.
Every second—soft or loud—that ticks each hour, 24/7,
Your Presence is within me, and surrounding me.
Today I feel “rocky”, but You are my ROCK
High above the restless waves below—
Waters which shall not consume me
For their volume cannot begin to match
That of Your relentlessly watchful love.
I can trust Your grace, mercies,
Protection and abundant provision
Which endlessly overflow the pitcher of
Living Water You pour onto me ~
Thank You, Abba Father
