le péan

some weeks ago i found this poem i wrote in 2013 based on 1 john 5:14. i thought it was rather lovely, and i decided to share it here (good job, 18 year old alyssa).

1 john 5:14 (nivuk)
this is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

God hears:
in quiet-- in confusion
in darkness and light
in anger or sorrow
in the day or at night

in bliss and in boredom
if i sit or stand
resting or working;
at sea or on land

in shame or in glory
with companion or alone
afraid or courageous
in health or sick moan

always, always with me--
understanding and wise;
though i fall or stumble
in all lows and highs

God hears.
