Faith’s Crucible

100 Word Wednesday: Week 99

Image by Andre Hunter

He knew in marrow

Believes in heart: Jesus Saves

Had knelt at altar, laid all

Before Cross, surrendered

To Sovereign Lord his Past

Present hopes, Future days

Some friends split, worldly crew

But he gained a better few

Amped, he was living life abundant

Savior, Shepherd beside, to guide

Everything was going great

Until his brother was felled by Hate

Couldn’t be—was Jesus late?

Begging another Lazarus deal…

Grief, betrayal, unconcealed.

Jesus’ voice: “Trust me, son, in

Faith’s crucible…I was here on scene

Felt Death’s sting.  Watch Me bring

Vindication, redeem what’s stolen…

Trust Me, in the waiting”.
