Pastor’s Pondering – June 20, 2018

He said the truth was

He was nervous,

And pretty sure he was not

Up to the task.

But the other truth was

He trusted God

When he was nervous,

And even when

He was afraid-

So, he took steps

In a certain direction,

Repeating to himself

“Trust in the LORD

Trust in the LORD…”


And then the LORD said,

Okay, that’s far enough

(though not in those exact words)

And he was disappointed BUT

He told the truth,

“Trust in the LORD,



Now we take steps,

Walking humbly and bravely,

Headed for wherever

The LORD leads us next.
