Sovereign

Until the sun dawns on a day of equity,
dear God — be God.

Until creation is new like the spring,
dear God — be God.

Until your goodness ripens like a harvest,
dear God of mercy — be God.

Until your revelation is not obscured by lies,
dear God of insight — be God.

Until your prophets are not drowned out by idol worship,
o jealous God — be God.

Until your word resounds from earth to heaven,
o relentless God — be God.

Until every mountain is made low,
God, be our deliverance.

Until every tear is comforted,
God, be our companion.

Until every horn of oil overflows with blessing,
let there be no other God.

  1. Good morning, Rachel,
    I have been reading and praying with your posts, almost every morning for several years now. But recently your posts have stopped. Are you okay? Are you taking a break? Are you traveling and giving talks? I’ve taken to scrolling through your past postings. If you are not going to continue your posts, I want to take this time to thank you for every one of them. Thank you and go with God’s blessings, you certainly have been a blessings to many, many others.

    • Thank you so much for your message, Kathleen. Travel & several projects interrupted my blogging habits this month, but this week I’ll be posting book reviews. Your kind words are appreciated. Many blessings!
