Desert you? When have I ever deserted you? When have I ever left you alone in the storm?
Yes, you’ve endured trial.
Yes, you’ve endured trouble.
And, you’ve had your share of disasters, I’ll grant you, but deserted?
I don’t desert My children.
(You’re walking by sight again.)
How can I possible get you to let go of this lower glory, and come up higher, if I don’t let the midnight fall?
Even My good friend Abraham had to endure the horror of a great darkness. (Gen. 15:12 )
Trust, that’s what I’m after.
Your unquestioning, abiding-in-peace, singing-in-the-storm, trust.
(I am worthy of that.)
Frankly I find your distrust insulting.
How can you believe I love you and then think I would desert you?
Do you desert the ones you love?
(I never do.)
You are My child.
Others may abandon you—I never will.
Never. (Deut. 4:31)
Come child, let Me gather you into My arms.
They are everlasting arms. (Deut. 33:27)
Always welcoming, with enough of whatever You need.
(Today, it’s love.)
“LORD, you know all about it. Don’t stay silent! Don’t desert me now!”
