Journey on Damascus road.
Heart full of a vengeful load.
Saul met Light that did explode.
He fell to the ground that day.
“Why do you persecute me?”
“Who are you Lord? I can’t see.”
“Jesus, God eternally.”
“Get up now, be on your way.”
Companions stood there speechless.
As his sight was now reachless.
They led him off, the teachless.
To Damascus for three days.
God spoke to Ananias.
“But Lord, he wants to fry us!”
“Go heal and teach of Jesus.
And he’ll turn and change his ways.”
In obedience he went.
Saul knew he was heaven sent.
With healing he did repent.
And then gave God all his praise.
WIth the scales gone from his eyes,
he was baptized, turned from lies.
God equipped him to be wise.
To God, his whole life he raised.
(Responding to Acts 9:1-19)
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that while we were yet sinners, You interrupted our space of being stuck to show us Your grace. Thank You that it is Your love that lights our path and pulls us out of the miry muck. Forgive us for forgetting or taking for granted the gifts of grace and guidance You give to us. Please help us to hear Your heart, and be quick to do as You ask. Teach us to trust You more in all things and at all times. May our obedient movement make room for many to come to know You as Hope and Healer. Amen.
