Our Promise. Be.

Our Promise. Be.

From Isaiah 9

Where words fail.

Faces pale.

Find us in groans of grief.

Our Promise.

Wonderful Counsellor. Be.

Wild fear, smothered in dark.


Too painful, just too hard.

Our promise.

Mighty God. Be.

In the empty, the void.

In the missing voice. No choice.

In loss like no other.

Our Promise.

Everlasting Father. Be.

Restless sunset.

A world making us wince.

Lost innocence.

Our promise.

Prince of Peace. Be.

O come, O come Emmanuel.

Be with us.

Praying this over you today,

Love, Michelle

  1. Wow. Thank you for sharing, Michelle. I know you’re struggling through your own loss this season. I just lost my cousin. Too soon. It is hard to find joy and peace right now. Your beautiful poem reminds me that it is all in Him and in time will be in us also. Praying God’s restoring peace for you and your family this Christmas.
