A Modern Day Hagar*

Blessed by He
Who has always seen me,
even as I veiled my heart
with hatred and arrogance,
even as I closed my eyes 
to truth and light,
even as I covered my mind
with contempt and judgment – 
He has seen me
underneath that veil,
grasping at its corners,
choking on the air so stale,
sobbing in the darkness – 
He has seen me
when I thought I was lost forever
in the wilderness of that night – 
oh, blessed be He
Who has always seen me
and refused to leave me there.

*Read Genesis, Chapter 16
