To learn to place my trust and hope in… Him who is Almighty
We’ve had, and have, so many fears. And things that make things, here, less than perfect
I like it when things arrive; when (sometimes ‘little’) good things take me by complete surprise
That maybe Yusuf (AS) had been at the bottom of that well, to know, deeply
That only Allah could ever get him out; to the other side.
Even when I think I know: I don’t. It’s not actually so scary. I tether these feelings of
Falling, brokenness, anxious projections,
fundamental uncertainty: to He who is Almighty
He Knows, and Knew me. Before anybody has ever known me. Most profoundly. Before I ever opened my eyes,
Saw the world for the first time, took that first big breath of life. He Knows, surely, what, and whom, He has Created.
That: ‘the people’ can get things wrong. About you, about things, about life and existence. How best to take care of you. What you need. And
What you need to be away from. To not have, for any Divinely-Ordained time. He Knows. So that, perhaps:
That first taste of water, that first sip of air. That much sweeter. He Knows you best.
Have faith, dear traveller: when your (fallible, human,) thoughts hurt. This is just a test.
يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱسْتَعِينُوا۟ بِٱلصَّبْرِ وَٱلصَّلَوٰةِ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ مَعَ ٱلصَّـٰبِرِينَ
“O you who have believed, seek Help through Patience and Prayer. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.“
