True Wilderness

gaillovesgodspoetry

Dark and murky waters
Were once my familiar places.
Dark and angry people
Were once my familiar faces.
You brought a light
Into those foggy spaces.
You opened my eyes
To ill intended embraces.
You put my feet on a path
That led to where You were.
You removed the confusing stronghold,
And gave me faith to be sure.
My manna You have been.
My thirst You have quenched.
When I’ve needed protection,
You have been my defense.
Out of my Egypt, I live.
I serve the One who brought me out.
No more chains of naivety.
You have erased all doubt.
Now I know, and am known by
A saving strength that is You.
Even in my Wilderness,
I know You are True.
