The Mystery of Disappointment – A Poem by Kristen Sykes



He heals the brokenhearted

He will finish what He started;

Have decades passed and still desires

    are burnt in endless holy fires?

Remember Moses’ bush

It burned and burned and burned;


The bush lived on amid the flames

Love one Day will fulfill His claims

To stop the fires

Give heart’s desires;


So turn and turn and turn

To worship there with naked feet

Prostrate, where pain and promise meet.


by Kristen Sykes

Psalm 147:3; Psalm 37:4
