at the end of your rope….. (praying with Psalm 139)

there is nowhere

I can escape grace,

nowhere I can hide,

neither my shame nor my chaos

put you off my scent

still you pursue me,

holy hound of love,

when I flee

you take wings,

when I cover myself in darkness

you light breaks through,

 love insists on sitting with me,

even in a pit of my own making….

then heaven whispers to my soul,

“you were made in love,

for love,

and I know your ways,

when you reach the end of your rope

love remains,

love always remains “

Love remains,

love always remains….

there words echo

as I reach for that rope and find it gone

yet I am held,

forever in love



About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
