Lovingly Hemmed In

Loving Father,

I look to you, seek you,

and wait upon your hand and guidance.

What I saw as my cage with iron bars,

is your protection and strong hand hemming me in.

Where I feel stuck,

you are working out the deeper things,

your Spirit moving in the hidden places of the heart,

growing, maturing, and strengthening me in ways I don’t yet understand.

When I am angry, frustrated, discouraged, and desperate,

and I finally give up my own willful efforts,

your hand reaches in,

once more bringing comfort and encouragement,

reassuring me that everything is alright.

You’re with me, that’s all I need to know.

I know you plans are to prosper me and not to harm me,

and that you work all things for your glory and my good.

I am blessed and in strong, safe hands.

I love you Abba,
