Poem: Romans 8:28

Romans 8:28

You can hear the call
over the roar of the tide
as is crashes into the shore,
dangerous and persistant,
it’s power to wear stone to sand
always in your mind.

You can hear the call
over the thunderstorm in the distance,
it’s rumbling a reminder
of storms past, that tore at your soul
and left you broken.

You can hear the call,
distant, faint, almost lost
in the terrible empty noise
that surrounds you.

You can hear the call,
but somehow,
you cannot make out the words
so you wait
for the quiet of night,
for the darkness,
the silence
where you can hear.

======================

Romans 8:28 reads:  “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”  It’s a hard verse to trust some times, but that doesn’t make it any less true. Generally, I am learning, it takes time to see it’s truth. Often lots of time.
