Look to the Sky

“Your faithfulness stretches to the sky”
We hear those words
and mostly we believe them
Because we have heard stories of your faithfulness
stories of freedom from oppression
of providence in the wilderness
of deliverance from evil

We hear these stories
we look to the sky
and we are comforted

But then…
there are the times when we search the skies for signs of your faithfulness
and see only storm clouds…
and our oppressors return
and we find ourselves lost in the wilderness again
and evil threatens to overtake us

But then we remember the stories
and we know that the storm will pass
and we will find your faithfulness yet again stretched to the sky

So God, we have read the stories
and we ask that you, true to your faithful self
free us
lead us
deliver us

And we know that you will.
