Impossible Provision

John just beheaded,

the loss of great friend.

Men seeking comfort

and rest at days end.

As they gathered round,

reported to Him,

people kept coming;

energy grew dim.

Jesus said, “Let’s go.”

So, off they all went.

Seeking solitude,

refreshing time spent.

The crowd, however,

did not get the news,

and ran on ahead,

as the eager do.

When Jesus landed

and saw the large crowd,

He said, “feed my sheep,

let go of your doubt.”

We have not the funds

to feed so many,

five loaves and two fish –

few would get any.

He had them sit down

in groups on the ground.

He raised what they had,

abundance abounds.

All who were present,

ate ’til satisfied.

With much left over,

God’s grace did provide.

(Responding to Mark 6:30-44)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that nothing is impossible for You.  Thank You that though we look and see our lack, You see the possibilities.  Teach us to see through Your eyes, so that we too, might be ever seeing that which is possible in You.  Forgive us for our doubt, and help us to trust You alone as our Source, our Strength and our Supply.  Thank You that nothing is too difficult for You.  May the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart, be an ongoing testimony of our trust in You and Your faithfulness.  May many come to know You through all that we say and do.  Be glorified through our words, actions and attitudes today.  Amen.
