You know how I
Have loved you
With a passionate love,
With patience
In truth
I have loved you.

Then you
In desperation
Come to Me
In the pressure
Of your trial
Grieving,
Asking of Me
As if
My love
Had taken leave,
Become a sieve
Spilling your footing
Like a rock
That bleeds
Or a tree
With leaves
Bearing no fruit.
In your trial
Know I have
Made a way
For you
And in your
Clinging to
This truth
You defeat
All the power
Of the enemy.
Have faith in Me.
