Subjection to Trials is a Sacred Trust
With Isaiah, we say, "Here am I" to God,
and He takes us up on that.
It is not when we live in Ivory Towers
that our testimony is meaningful
to those in despair,
But when we, too, have been lost
When we know the bitterness of endings
When we've waded through 'Which-Way-Is-Up?'
and Not Knowing
When we've stood in the Painful,
That place, my friends, that Sacred Ground
is where Trials are Transmuted into Meaningful Testimony
Into the Sustenance our Sovereign meant our lives to be
Into very Bread of Life
and Living Water,
For all who are thirsty,
For whosoever will...
Here am I, my Lord, Send me.
"Do not be afraid; I am He Who Lives...
Death will be swallowed up in Victory."
-Rev. 1:17-18, 1 Cor 15:54
