Psalm 10

A cast of brilliant light hit

the shadows with gale force winds.

I blinked blinded eyes,

trying to see through the confusion.

I ducked and skittered sideways,

as danger made itself known.

 

Glassy eyes stared into mine,

no depth of soul in them.

I danced away as raw power

met its mark

in the place where I had been.

 

I nearly collapsed with fear

but I held my place,

wishing for help to come.

The eyes grinned maliciously at me,

seeing the despair etched on my face.

 

Then,

just as I thought my death

would come at last, a blast

erupted around me.

It threw me against the wall

of my prison. I shut my eyes tight,

trying to breath, wanting it all to stop.

Only when all was quiet

did I open my eyes to find

that I was completely alone.

 

I sank slowly with relief

to the cold stone floor. I held

my head in my hands

and stifled a sob.

 

A hand touched my hair.

I lifted my head slowly, fearfully,

but when I saw who it was, 

tears poured silently

as He knelt beside me

and held me in His arms.

I looked into His depthless eyes,

finding no words with which to thank Him

for banishing the evil that had plagued me.

He just smiled and nodded.

He knew what it was that I could not say.

He gently released me, telling me

without words that in my future battles

with evil,

I will not have to fight alone again

for Jesus will be at my side.
