Mouth of my heart

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         “I relieved your shoulder of the burden;
                  your hands were freed from the basket.
         In distress you called, and I rescued you;
                  I answered you in the secret place of thunder;
                  I tested you at the waters of Meribah….

         Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.”
                           —Psalm 81.6-7

even in my freedom
I don’t know how you’ve freed me;
I don’t feel the weight of the burdens
I don’t feel.
The place of thunder
where you have answered me,
and even its thunder
is secret from me.
I’ve been tested in ways I didn’t know,
rescued in ways beyond me.

I only know
that I open the mouth of my heart

and wait.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
