For he will command his angels concerning you. to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. – Mathew 4:6

Then you will walk in your way securely And your foot will not stumble. – Proverbs 3:23


Sometimes I pray for money. The alleviation of anxiety.

I wake up in tears from the strain and the worry.

Day in and day out – afraid to sleep for the morning will come, afraid to wake for the day will begin

Burdened completely, no enthusiasm for life

Then God shows up – when I have exhausted even my words – when I am down to groans and moans

And says –

My dearest son, well done

When all you have is habit, your habit is to turn to me

And I have always been here

And do not think I held back to teach you lessons

I want you to know the fruit of faith is guaranteed

Here on this Earth

And in future, stored up

like this;

Angels to guard you in all your ways; 

to lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike stones

And your foot will not stumble

And I understand the gift!


I am free of the deadliest sin – sins I could not have avoided had I stubbed my toes

Corruption – Who will know? Take the money

Steal it – They are rich. God knows my pain.

Kill them – No one cared when I needed help.

Pornography and lying, false witness and anger, greed and damaging speech

All I have avoided

My path lifted by prayer – my foot did not touch the stone

For I could be in the depths of hell – a hell of eternity, not just lack of rent

And I am on my knees, thanking and praising

And was lifted when I could not see the real pits of hell surrounding me

My foot – my foot – my foot did not touch the stone
