Christ Carries Me Through Every Season



weary wanderer, wondering


God uphold me . . .

lift me above the tempter’s

web spun to ensnare,

to prohibit progress, to halt me in my tracks,

to pull me

spiraling, downward; pit-of-Hell descent;

sinking sand? . . . .


equivocal eyes, envisioning


Holy Spirit, Comforter . . .

removing doubt; making ordered steps clearer;

Lifter of my head,

upraises me, keeps me safe in His loving Arms,

carries me

through every season, verdant or arid;

life’s cycles! . . . .


footsteps trudging sand,


Savior’s prints—never mine . . .

renewing His Strength, confirming His Faith in me,

affecting my reliance upon

supernatural, divine

God interventions in storms; then

turns me around, places my feet on

solid ground! . . . .

and likewise in the desert, where you saw how Adonai your God carried you, like a man carries his child, along the entire way you traveled until you arrived at this place. ~ Deuteronomy 1:31, CJB

Till your old age I will be the same —
I will carry you until your hair is white.
I have made you, and I will bear you;
yes, I will carry and save you. ~ Isaiah 46:4, CJB
