I’m here with you, the space between us thinner than ever. A closeness etched through your sacrifice offered. You only see the mud and grime, instead of the cherries and rosebuds. You look at your dirt riddled hands, instead of seeing the altitude climbed, the battles conquered and ravens overcome.
See what I see. Breathe what I breathe. See the angels attracted to your service, the Kingdom chorus cascading from every battle-worn step forward. See the hope you’ve accessed and the key you hold. See the rainbows glistening and alive.
I have not forgotten you. This is me answering your cries. Open your eyes. Taste oasis’ land. Lean into these words I say... Strap them to you like the great weapons they are. Look up, child. Look up. See the small cloud coming. See the drought’s end in sight.
