A Poem for Passover

by Hilary Horn

By Mary Harwell Sayler

Studying Exodus and remembering how God led His people safely through the wilderness brought to mind questions about how God leads us. Sometimes it’s hard to know! Discernment doesn’t always come easily, and we never totally “arrive,” but if we’re truly seeking, we will find markers along the way to keep us going now and into eternity.

Questions for any Exodus

How do you follow a cloud
through desert storms
or rainy days or skies
as grey as the face
of a heart attack happening?

How do you follow a fire
at sunset when the sky glows
with more than you know
and your feet are too tired
to walk one moment more?

How do you track the steps
of God, Who’s apt
to double back and pick up
a horde of slaves, a lost
lamb, a new Baby in a manger
in need of a diaper change?
