Memories of the Miraculous

Miraculous event –

through the Jordan they crossed.

As priests  took the first step,

not a soul to be lost.

For as faithful footing,

made way upon the ground,

flood waters retreated,

and safe passage was found.

Plethora of people,

made way to other side.

God’s favor upon them,

it could not be denied.

Now ready to enter,

awaited promise land;

God said stop and construct

a marker of this plan.

A large stone for each tribe,

to stack up and recall.

To tell of His favor,

to share with one and all.

All people of the earth,

might know His mighty hand.

Protector of His own,

against Him, none can stand.

(Responding to Joshua 3 and 4)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your miracles do not end, and that You are still the same mighty God today, that You were back then.  Forgive us for not stopping on the other side of our own “Jordan” long enough to slow down and recognize in awe, the incredible that You have just accomplished before us.  Help us to make time to remember, to really recognize all of the miraculous movement that You have made in our lives and in the lives of those around us.  May we find ways to have our own sort of “markers” so that we might share of all that You have done for us with our children and all those who need to know of the great hope that is found in You.  May we magnify Your Mighty Name as we remember.  Amen.

  1. This was really great to read, Shannon–because I’ve been traveling with Moses since the first of the year, and it’s thrilling (as never before!). Thanks so much, God bless you–love, sis Caddo

    • Thanks sis Caddo, I love how even after reading things many times before, God can give us fresh insight by His Spirit! Blessings as we discover together! ❤ Shannon
