Alas, April is over! For the past month I’ve dutifully checked a daily prompt to base my writing on. Waking up today, I questioned what I should write about? So I checked online for a bible verse of the day. Here’s what came up…
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
– Isaiah 58:6 (NIV)
How the Spirit prompts us!!! Here’s my poem for today:
Is it not there?
Where God chose it,
this holding back, self-restraint,
Not to tie you down,
but to loosen, unfasten, liberate, and
deliver from the corruption that binds you.
To untie that heavy burden and slide it
off your back
where you have been bearing it too long.
You who are abject,
abused, burdened, destitute, enslaved and exploited,
it is there,
where God chose it,
to set you free,
that He may break every yoke.
