Earth Shakes

The earth is shaking
The ground is moving
Feels like things are about to happen

Are they?

After all this wrestling
Seeking and struggling
All this waiting
To find a way
To choose faith
And keep persisting in faith

What is it?

This strength that feels so weak
This finding that is still so seeking
This hope that still really sees no light
These tears of passion that feel like going crazy
These glimpses of dreams to come true
That are still not yet

Things are hard 
But there are signs of hope
Dreams are coming true
Or might
I see the beginnings

Help is on the way, it seems
A friend‘s offering
God answering my cry with ideas

I bawled the other day, at one little email
One little line in a short email
I've been asking
Oh, I've been heard
Another offer of help yesterday

The strategic planning needed
Finally ideas starting to come
Next steps become more concrete
Maybe the 'old me' is finally coming back
When did it go, And how? 
I know some of the answer, not all
I hope it stays
Strength renewed
Lessons learned

It's time to dig in
To prayer
And doing this with others
Discerning together

Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down,
    that the mountains would tremble before you! 

 As when fire sets twigs ablaze
    and causes water to boil,
come down to make your name known to your enemies
    and cause the nations to quake before you!

For when you did awesome things that we did not expect,
    you came down, and the mountains trembled before you. 

 Since ancient times no one has heard,
    no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
    who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.

 Isa. 64:1-4
