You promised to show up
Whenever we feed one another
In your name…
You promise that we can celebrate
With one another and you
Whenever we want/need to
How is this possible?
Jesus let me hang onto your promises,
And remind me,
Even if I let go—your promises remain
They are better than time or borders
Or any other human invention
God, I’m going to stand on your promises,
Or hide in them
Or even if I lose them—
I’m going to wait for them to find me again
Like Ruth and Naomi,
Like Joseph in Egypt,
Your promises don’t find us because we are perfect
They find us simple because we are loved.
May we feel beloved today.
