Against a pasty white sky
Elongated branches sway
March’s howl blows through
As if the wind’s target is you
Tightly sown buds
Keep still, surrendered
Trusting His plan rendered
Why then do I get tossed about?
An undercurrent wraps ankles of His faithful servants
Stumbling forward, I walk
Without finding His grace, I fall
“Where are you, God, in this all?”
Our Lord says,
“Seek me, and you shall know
I am before, behind, above and below
Pushing in your own might
Will prolong every battle into the dead of night
Be with me in faith
When you need me, pray
From everlasting to everlasting
I am your end and your beginning
I want nothing more
Than to be your moon in every black sky
I long to be your Morningstar as My sun rises
I died. I live. I breathe.
For you, all of you, if only you would see”
My heart says of You, “Seek His face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide Your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger;
You have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me, God, my Savior.
Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.
Teach me Your way, Lord;
Lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me, spouting malicious accusations.
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord,
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord (Psalm 27:8-14).

Some people smile and say “Yay it’s Friyay!”. With my sensitive prayerful heart, I scroll Facebook to see death, suicide, and hurt. I know of fellow believers caught in lies or stuck in a pit.
As followers of Jesus, our foes are plenty, but Our God is mighty and sovereign and just.
We must be strong and take heart and keep His Word on our tongues, for others will twist and lure you away from the Kingdom through “undercurrents” of enemy lies and deceit.
Right this minute as I type, I pray Jesus speak to those wondering and wandering, I pray His voice command evil in progress to stop, I pray He hold close those who feel alone, I pray ears and hearts open to truth. I pray Our Lord and Savior to speak to those of faith who count themselves better than others, convict them in their pride. I pray for God to orchestrate saving help for those affected by the Nevada flood and the many families struck by terror overseas in the recent murders of Christians. I pray for all church leadership to be still and know You are God, to listen to Your Voice to follow as they lead their flocks. I pray for Jesus to make His presence known in situations of danger and hate. I pray for His healing balm over marriages torn by the enemy, I pray for His healing balm on those with chronic pain (emotional, physical and spiritual). I pray right now we as His people look up and tell Him, You Are Our God, Father, Lord and Savior. All of this in the holy name Jesus, I pray.
