Talia ran across the forest
Her enemies in hot pursuit.
They have been chasing her for months ,
And today she felt trapped in the woods.
Puffing and panting and fighting her way,
“I need to make it to the other side”, she kept telling herself
“Come what may!.”
The path was so shaky,
There were pebbles and stones everywhere.
Cuts and bruises
Leaves and bushes onward she went like a bullet train.
I will trust in you, O Lord
Words of Deuteronomy 33: 12 KJV
“The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders” gave her the confidence to move on unafraid."
Suddenly she heard a gunshot behind her,
Quick footsteps hushed voices and a loud thud,
"Don't worry its all over",
The man in authority came over to her and said.
Still shaking from all the excitement,
She walked out of the woods,
Her family stood waiting for her.
She hugged them, and the words of Deuteronomy 33:29 came over to her again.
“Happy art thou, O
who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Lord, the shield of thy help, and
who is the sword of thy Excellency! And thine enemies shall be found liars unto
thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.” Israel
