Dry Bones and Arid Places
by Deborah Ann Belka
6/23/2013 / Poetry
When God takes you into a valley,
of dry bones and arid land
you can be sure He'll be with you
and give you the power to withstand.
For, He promises not to forsake us,
when devastation comes our way
nor cut us off from His mercy
but send His glorious hope to our day.
When you're in a spiritual desert,
and there's no water left in your well
you can be confident in knowing
His Spirit in you will always dwell.
For, God promises to meet His child,
at the lowest points of their life
and He will give you the strength
to out-run the heels of strife.
When God take you into odd places,
like Jonah was in the day . . .
you can count on one thing
it's not where He'll have you stay.
For, whether it be a whales belly,
or your own spiritually dry pit
He has something for you to learn
before He takes you out of it!
Jonah 2 :1-3
King James Version
"Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his
God out of the fish's belly, And said, I
cried by reason of mine affliction unto the
LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly
of hell cried I, and thou heardest my
voice. For thou hadst cast me into the
deep, in the midst of the seas; and the
floods compassed me about: all thy
billows and thy waves passed over me."
