No Such Luck

I was going to the store
but a dark storm is gathering
all around us

what we needed can wait
until tomorrow as a storm
seldom changes its

appointed path
unless God turns it away

we prayed to God and God
answered our prayers just
like he answered Moses

God answered Moses’ prayer
and parted the Red Sea

God answered our prayers
and moved the hurricane
away from us

but you say I am not Moses
why would God do that for
me

another said it was luck

if you believe in luck then
you do not believe in God

no such luck

because the God who was with
Moses is the same God who
is with me the same God

then and now and forever

Not Far Behind

It got dark at midday when
the first thunderstorm hit
and bright sun followed.

But not for long as the
fourth thunderstorm of the
day just passed over.

It is the start of hurricane
season so it is easy to
think of doom and gloom.

Will our new fence hold
this time?

Talking faith on a sunny
day is one thing but on a
day like today you hold

your breath and pray the
Lord will bring us, our
house, and fence through,

not to mention the swaying
trees and swinging power
lines. God is our provider

and refuge as the weather
becomes a true test of faith
with hope not far behind.
