The Quaker Prophet's Cry - 8/26/2009

Today's Mental Image:
A Window On A Prophet's World
Every weakness I have has become a strength.  Every strength a knife welding force that has stabbed my own soul - has cut the very life within my soul and the soul of all that have cared about me and been cared for by me.
Think that's a scandal !
click The Prophet's Cry above.
The Reality ?
He holds me by my feet 
when I am afraid to drink
from the quiet waters
of the River of God.
He restores my soul:
by quieting me in the midst of storm, 
by guiding me in paths of righteousness, even when it hurts,
by patiently listening to my screams, 
for his name's sake.
Even though he walks me 
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I don't need to fear evil,
for he is with me.
Yes, his discipline and correction,
they comfort me.
Very often, he prepares a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
He is the source of my refreshing,
the joy of my salvation.
Forgive me Lord for my complaints.
And thank you for the record
of other prophets' cries.
It comforts me.
