The Lord was with Adam and Eve
when all was perfect
when innocence was lost.
The Lord was with Jacob
when he dreamt a stairway to heaven,
when he feared for his life.
when he struggled for a blessing,
when he received the blessing of God and brother.
The Lord was with Joseph
when he was the favored one,
when he was betrayed.
when he was misunderstood,
when he extended favor.
The Lord was with Moses
when he was alone, a helpless baby,
when he was in Pharoah’s home.
when he broke a 10 Commandment,
when he received the 10 Commandments.
when he sought freedom for his people,
when he was insufficient for the task.
when he wandered through the wilderness,
when he saw the Promised Land..
The Lord was with us
in the promise of new life.
