Background for the poem below:

EXODUS 4:7; EXODUS 4:29-31
7 The Lord said, "I have indeed seen the
misery of my people
in Egypt. I have
heard them crying out
because of their
slave drivers, and I am concerned about
their suffering
.
29 Moses and Aaron brought together all
the elders of the Israelites,
30 and Aaron told them everything the
Lord had said to Moses. He also
performed the signs before the people,
31 and they believed. And when they
heard that the Lord was concerned
about them and had seen their misery,
they bowed down and worshiped
.
&
ROMANS 2:4
4 Or do you show contempt for the riches
of his kindness, tolerance and patience,
not realizing that God's kindness leads
you toward repentance
?
 

I felt the beauty of the Tree
when the cast shadow fell on me,
for then I sensed that time's Maker
knew me past the trunk's circled years.

Hebrews, enslaved, rubbed their chafed wrists,
scars on their lashed backs seemed tight-knit
into faith when from hurt they heard
from Moses' own lips that God cared.

Likewise, Elohim's love for us
spurs confession of our mistrust
of hardships--though we're merely dust.
Revive us Lord! Prayer says You must
