Manna from Heaven

We prayed for food

for we were hungry and lost in the desert

lost on our own account,

though we blamed God

but it was God who gave us food,

food and rest and new life:

manna from heaven and

Canaan, the promised land

milk and honey

We could not store up this gift

it would only last one day

but it was enough get us through

not extravagant or elaborate,

no it was not meant to satisfy,

only to sustain

for we were not meant to stay in the desert

there were greater things

lying ahead

if only we would have faith

and believe! ✝
