Waiting

eland2

Ezekiel 34:11-12 (NIV). “For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them. As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness.”

San: The earliest hunter-gatherers in southern Africa

LORD, you have been pursuing me
not chasing, but following
Patiently, like the San
tracking a wounded eland
not to kill
but to save

Waiting for the time
I would realise
how fragile
how weak
I was

Have I finally
stopped.
running.
Have I given who I am
to Your embrace
fully
wholly
entirely
surrendered?
