the wellspring of the heart
grounded in Who God is,
established in His Word,
the glimmer of light in darkness.
a promise, a forward look,
a bridge over the bog of trial,
which carries the footsteps of our faith
and turns our eyes to God.
the word is honey on the lips,
water to the parched soul,
nourishment to the emaciated heart,
the manna from God for the hungry soul.
Psalm 42:11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? hope thou in God; for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
