...... A STREAM IN THE DESERT


NO OTHER WAY


When I finally wake up to discover that I’m trapped,


Caught in a prison of self-obsession,


What’s left for me to do but grieve?


The waters closed in over me,

The deep was round about me,

Weeds were wrapped around my head,

At the root of the mountains.

I went down to the land

Whose bars closed upon me forever.

Jonah 2


Where else can I turn, but to the God I do not know?


What else can I do, but cry for help?



When my soul fainted within me,

I remembered the Lord,

And my prayer came to thee.

Jonah 2


Once you find yourself, like Jonah, trapped in the belly of the fish,

there is no other way out:


Abandon yourself to the mercy of God,,


Cry for help.


And help will surely come.
