Many times God rescues us in ways different than perhaps we would like.  “My ways are not your ways . . .”


I prayed for a lifting out of distress,
A setting down on the shore
With sweet warm sand beneath my feet
And storm-slashed waves no more

Breaking upon me.  A ripe fig tree
For dreaming under perhaps
And over me draped a cloud-fluffed sky
With sunlight around me wrapped.

Sweet Jesu, pray save me from all things dark
And rescue me from distress!

But You only gave me a raft to ride
With You the waves of distress.

Mother Mary Francis

One thought on “Rescue

  1. Thanks for the reminder to let God give me the means to help me instead of forging ahead on my own. His means are so much, much better than mine. Anne Valentyne
