Hold Me Fast, Lord

Hold Me Fast, Lord
by Linda Trott Dickman

It takes a flip of wind
and everything can change.
A devil in the dust
our visions re-arrange.

A sudden furious gale,
hard pushed the other way,
and our noble intent
a child’s balloon awry.

A gust, we shield our eyes
our feet unsure at best.
Now it’s raining sideways
surely this, a test.

A wisp of worried prayer
a momentary plea
the wind inside is slowed
my eyes are fixed on Thee.

All at once it stops
a breeze comes through the pine.
All at once I know
I am wholly Thine.
