I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry Not Alone—He Was There

Lord, you’ve been our refuge from generation to generation. Before the mountains were formed or the earth and the world were brought forth, you are God from eternity to eternity.–Psalm 90:1-2 ISV

He was there when we entered the world,
There when babbling became words.
He was there that scary first day of school,
And the joyful, but even scarier last.
He is present not just in those important times of life,
But every day walking beside,
Guiding our steps,
Providing a refuge when we’re hurting or confused.
And, if we listen closely as we follow His lead,
We hear the quiet, “Well, done…”
Realize through it all,
He’s been near.
Never have we walked alone.
And we bow in gratitude,
