Inspired by Acts 22-28
Sometimes it’s more than a storm,
it’s a shipwreck.
It’s two weeks of starvation
and near drowning before rescue,
then a viper sinks needle teeth
into the heel of your hand
as you feed a new-kindled fire.
Maybe after this, Caesar
lets you live two uncertain years
before taking your head.

But God is not angry with you.
Remember when you fought Him,
He turned you from the brink,

and if after all this time
you think you can’t trust yourself,
remember your friends on the road
who didn't understand the voice,
but saw the light from heaven
shining all around.

Inspired by the Come, Follow Me readings for July 29-August 4
