Still, I Wait on Christ

by Tabitha N. Munyoki

Raw, pressed on every side
Disillusioned by disappointments
I am Sarah, yet another month
My womb stays silent
The promise, laughter inducing
Did Abe really hear God?
More than once, I have sorted out Haggai
Pushed her towards his tent
The bitter taste of bareness
Daring me, draining me
Aching for a babe nourished at my breast
Clothe me, oh Lord, cover my nakedness
Calm, my soul
Tell the righteous it is well with them
His righteousness upon me
The inheritance mine to co-share
His eternal deposit, a guarantee
The cares of this world
Will not crush me
I am firmly embedded
Never abandoned
My faith may flutter
Still, I hold fast
To the faith of Christ
Ever redeeming!
