I have seen... I have heard... I have come

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                     Then the Lord said, "I have seen the misery of my people who are in Egypt; I have heard their cry on account of their taskmasters. Indeed, I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them from the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey.”          —Exodus 3. 7-8

Today, in the wilderness you wander,          in the slave quarters you inhabit,          in each task and every moment,

you are accompanied,          not merely observed from afar,

by One who sees you, and hears your silent cries,

who sees what oppresses you,          sees through the illusions that confine you,

who knows your suffering,          who shares your experience,          who lives in your flesh,

who comes to set you free          to bring you out of what diminishes your life,          out of your old self,

into a broad and fertile place,          a new life.

All this, today.          And again tomorrow.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
